Cellular Ant. locations and distance - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

So, mabye someone out there could help me out.
Does anyone know what the average distance for a cellular ant. is.
and yes, i know that terrain, power and height all play into it.
And then, is there a place to go that will show who uses what towers where. (not just cellular) I couldn't find anything on FCC pages.

just a geek looking for better service.

I have found that a 150-ft typical cellsite talks about 4 miles.......
There are many variables, so take it with a grain of salt!

In any cellular network be it GSM, CDMA or WLAN, there is a tradeoff between quality (ie BER) and capacity. You add more users (means more $), then you better make sure your frequency plan has minimal interference (ie good quality).

Go to a tower providers site, like Crown Castle, Pinnacle
Many show where there towers are, that they then lease
to the providers.

Here's one link:

The freq also plays a large part in it. As well as beam width.

Hi amBOFH, average ht of cellular antennas in City proper is around 25m. Using a panel antenna with a gain on 17dbi, it gives you roughly 250 to 300 meters. Its using an 1800 spectrum. Hope it helps. - mcloud_30
