Cellular Ant. locations and distance - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

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

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
