Metro PCS recently co-located on this Sprint monopole at a sports park in San Bernardino, CA.
Is sprint using 3 panels per sector? That is very weird!
That looks like something I would see Alltel do in some spots in other states.
Yeah 3 panels per sector seems weird to me to. It almost looks like T-Mobile on the ends with Sprint in the middle.
Is this possibly a wimax install?
It isn't a WiMax install, none of the antennas are WiMax, they're actually the same three antennas through each sector. While not a definite answer, this site could be receiving WiMax and the fourth antenna was removed in preparation.
Also, good job on Metro on being cheap and installing a sector in the climbing space.
Yeah I forgot to mention the 3 panel oddity. Not the norm for Sprint sites around here.
Even in Florida you don't often see that type of panel setup for sprint. They could just maybe need some extra capacity?
I'm wondering if this is a Sprint "Legacy site". I've seen sprint sites like this before. They did this in the early years of their system.:loony:
I'm curious does metropcs usually put on panels in that way?
Funny how this thread gets one reply every year.
No. They more typically use more panels than this. I have seen them use as many as 6 sectors of 1 panel each. It all depends on the area and what they need.
MetroPCS seems to be very good at engineering a site to its local needs. They don't use a "3 sector 1 panels each" approach most places.
