    As luck would have it I actually found this new carrier today in an area where it is the 3rd carrier. I hit the north sector, so assuming the pattern follows the same as all of the other bands it should be D3, D4, D5 (D6, D7, D8 for 6 sector sites) for the 3rd PCS carrier. I'll try to hit this site again when I have time and confirm the other 2 sectors.

    Hey Mike, I recently noticed that on AT&T the B2 second carrier notation is only working on two sectors currently. I also have a secondary B4 carrier that isn't noted at all. See picture below. For reference, here is what I've observed in my area for GCI patterns for each band. We have a couple of 6 sector sites and now they are converting quite a few normal 3 sector sites to be 4 sector sites. The 4th sector follows the 6 sector pattern for the sector that split. B2 - 08, 09, 0A (0B, 0C, 0D) B2 2nd carrier - B5, B6, B7 (B8, B9, BA) B2 3rd Carrier - D3, D4, D5 (D6, D7, D8) B4 - 16, 17, 18 (19, 1A, 1B) B4 2nd carrier - AB, AC, AD (AE, AF, B0) B5 - 01, 02, 03 (04, 05, 06) B12 - 0F, 10, 11 (12, 13, 14) B14 - BF, C0, C1 (C2, C3, C4) B30 - 95, 96, 97 (98, 99, 9A) For B66, the only site I've hit B66 on used the same pattern as the B4 second carrier in my area, but I'm pretty sure that area doesn't have a B4 second carrier deployed. Not sure what they'll use for B66 here. I'm also seeing an additional 5x5 B2 carrier popping up in areas with a 20x20 carrier existing, using the 2nd carrier pattern noted about. Areas outside of the city that are not 20x20 already have a 2nd B2 carrier deployed. If they deploy that carrier outside of the city there may be sites with 3 B2 carriers, I haven't seen this yet though.

    Everything is working good on my S9+. I hit actual B66 last week and SCP identified everything correctly.
  4. After an OS update on my GS9+ yesterday, B66 appears to be showing correctly now. Notice it in the neighbor cell list. Usually shows up at B2 or B3. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  5. So is this the android Earfcn bug? First time I've noticed it. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  6. Not sure if I caught this in testing or if this is supposed to be live, but looks like AT&T is starting to fire up B14. This is the first of it that I have seen. SCP correctly Identified it.

    I am now getting the blocked message too. Got it both on my office WiFi today and now at home. I'm unable to sign in on either my phone, laptop, or desktop at home now. I am able to get to the site on my phone on LTE to post this. Here is the error I am getting on my laptop.

    Not sure if it's a known issue or not, just hit a site with a PCI of 0, and the app doesn't display it. Also, is there a way to hide 1x data when connected to LTE? I'd like to have the screen real estate for neighbor cell info. No other issues to report on the current beta. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk

    LG V20: LG's Next V10? (LG-LS997)

    Picked up this phone on Saturday and I love it so far. One of my favorite features so far is it shows a battery indicator in the status bar for my blue tooth headset. Many improvements over my aging Nexus 6, and the free TV doesn't hurt.

  11. My Ericsson markets (Both East and West KY) did this change over a year ago. B25 second carrier followed soon after for us. The Nashville market is still on the 169 offset as of the last time I was down there, about a month ago. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk

    Motorola Google Nexus 6 Users Thread

    Couldn't find much on this, so I went ahead an enabled B12 and rebooted. All seems fine so far. Last time I looked into this users were reporting boot loop upon enabling B12.

    Motorola Google Nexus 6 Users Thread

    Has anyone been able to get B12 enabled for LTE roaming without bricking this phone? Last I remember reading on this it was not possible, but that's been a while. I'll be going into a RRPP area (Bluegrass Cellular) this week, and wanted to search for it. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk

    East Coast Snow Storm

    Here in Louisville, KY, we were supposed to get hammered by the northern edge of the storm. Thursday night they was calling for 10-14" where I live. By end of day Friday we might have had 3 or 4". Looks like you guys got my snow. On the other hand, since I work for a grocery company, the panic buying helps sales, which helps my bonus.

    Snow in Nebraska, Texas, Iowa...etc

    Meanwhile we're on track for one of the warmest Decembers on record here in Louisville, KY. This is the first year I ever remember wearing shorts on Christmas and having the windows in the house open. I want my snow!!!
  17. I just got back to Louisville, saw the second carrier pretty consistently once I crossed the market line coming from Clarksville TN, all the way to just south of Louisville. I can't tell if its not live yet, or there's just too much other stuff that I haven't seen it yet. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  18. Great find! They must have fired it up this week. I've been watching since they changed the PCIs around, thinking this might be coming. I'm driving back from Nashville today, I'll see if I see it anywhere else coming up 65. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  19. Same for me as well. Won't stay open long enough to send report. Even tried a clean install. Nexus 6 5.1.1. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  20. Thanks for confirming CA. We've seen the second carrier live for awhile now, but none of us in the premier thread in Louisville have CA capable phones. The second carriers is widespread at this point, so I would assume CA would be as well. Let us know if you keep seeing it. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  21. I may be going out to do some work at the Kroger there in a few weeks. Not sure which one of my team is going to make the drive. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  22. I've noticed a lot of our 8t8r sites now broadcasting the B41 second carrier. I'm not sure about CA, since my phone doesn't support it. should be a fairly quick roll out for sites that can support it. Those two EARFCNs seem to be the standard so far. I haven't noticed any deviation from it yet anywhere.

    Network Vision/LTE - East Kentucky Market (Lexington)

    Also, FWIW, B41 deployment in Louisville has pretty much come to a halt since late January. Seems the priority changes have shifted the schedule a lot. And we have several sites running sub 2mbps. It should pick back up at some point this year for both markets I would think. On the other hand, Sprint B41 has been popping up like wildfire around Nashville.

    Network Vision/LTE - East Kentucky Market (Lexington)

    I haven't heard or noticed anything yet. For the most part, the network seems to be holding pretty good with just B25/B26 in the parts of the market I've been to for work. My only bad spot is whenever I'm working in the new Kroger on Euclid Ave in Lexington. There is a Sprint site within a quarter of a mile but I can barely hold LTE up on the main floor, and when I'm down in basement its either no signal or roaming on Verizon. We even installed a signal booster for management but it didn't seem to do much good.
