Easiest way to check spectrum holdings for Sprint?

Recommended Posts

I'm curious about how much BRS/EBS spectrum Sprint holds where I live. The FCC spectrum dashboard no longer seems to be maintained... is there an easy data base to find this information?

For BRS, it's pretty straight-forward.  This map may help:  https://specmap.sequence-omega.net/

For EBS, the licensing on it is so convoluted that it basically requires manually sorting through license data.  I've done it for select locations, but it's not something I do regularly because it's a real pain.

For EBS you have to do things like plot the radii for each frequency and then split the footballs for where they overlap given which  licensees which may alternate on different frequencies between several different locations.

Some BRS licenses are grandfathered to be like EBS and the frequency ranges can also vary.

Speaking of this question. Spectrum Omega shows no B41 in most of South Dakota, does Sprint really not own any there? Other than that 5mhz I saw when I was there back in May?

Sprint has mostly EBS in South Dakota.  But a lease would be easy to get from most of the BRS license holders in South Dakota.  Sprint already has agreements with Golden Wireless for License Protection Sites.

I wonder why EBS isn't on Spectrum Omega? This only really matters if Sprint if expands coverage or TMobile uses it.

Because it’s impossibly difficult to map.
