    How can I identify a Sprint Cell Site by looking at the antenna panels? Do the Sprint panels have a distinctive look? :help:

    Yes the panels (configuration & style) do have a unique look. However Cingular and T-Mobile are now installing very similar sites so it's getting harder and harder to tell. The best way is to try to get to the base of the cell site where the equipment cabinets are and look for a blue & white radio frequency warning label. If you find that label and the phone number listed on it is: 1-888-859-1400 it is a Sprint site. Also Sprint doesn't use an enclosed storage shed/small building to house their equipment like every other carrier does. They usually just place a brick wall around it with no roof on top.
