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
