    1800mhz is not used in North America. If it's anything it's 850/1900, as these are the frequencies Alltel/Verizon use.

    Almost all of the data deployed by Alltel was at 850Mhz. If you are in an area that is still under the Alltel brand, it is nearly certain to be at 850MHz.

    The aircard you are using is on the 850/1900 mhz bands. You were recently divested to Verizon so those are the frequencies used in the zip provided in your profile.

    Although the aircard does both 850/1900 bands, the important question is what frequency is being used for EVDO at the particular location. It is probably not broadcast on both bands.

    and Verizon took over Alltel in this area although I still send a check to alltel I could get a 850 to 1900 antenna but I was looking for the best results.\
    It looks like the snow might melt off the roof this week so I can get something done soon!

    Did Verizon sell service in Marcellus before they took over Alltel? If they did not, it is almost certain that your EVDO service is on 850MHz.
