How to decode cell site IDs?


Recommended Posts

I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?

Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

First two digits indicate region code, next two is cascade 4 is site type with the last three being unique site identifier.

So something such as SF72XC would be a northern California cell site macro class.

Something like SF90XS would be a northern California small cell mini macro site.

XC is macro, XS usually denotes small cell. XR is repeater. XM is microwave. Xt is toy cell (internal usage). XD is DAS.
