    Sprint has now added a second antenna this year near UC Berkeley. The previous one was installed at the North end of campus and didn't reach too well to the South and off campus. The new one which went on the air this week greatly improves coverage along Telegraph Avenue and frat row. Just a tip for those of you who have complained about coverage problems near UC Berkeley in the past. Sprint might be a good choice now.

    Larry,

    that's good news for Berkeley. I will start a poll over here and let you know about the improvements from and end-user point of view.

    Ok great but remember the new antenna just went up so base it on current performance and not the past.

    Hey Larry,

    you know me... I am trying to be as objective and current as possible... that's part of my profession...

    That's why I also said I will start a poll, implying that the data gathering phase also should start now.

    So long

    Here's a link to some current discussion from the usenet forum about the new site in Berkeley:

    New site in Berkeley!

    Chris Pisarra, who's a long time SPCS user in Berkeley tells about it. I also know a couple SPCS users in Berkeley and they both have seen significant gains from this new antenna as well as the one on the North side of campus which was added last February.
