    Re: Check reception, tower locations, dead spots

    That is one of the better links for tower location. Unfortunately, once you locate a tower, it is hard to tell if it is a cell tower (and which provider). I drove to a local tower and saw a Cingular sign on a door. I found the same tower at that website and it said nothing in description about Cingular. However, I found a closer tower and it did say Sprint in the comments on the website. I guess everyone knows that Sprint has a website of their tower locations. I only wish Verizon and the others would do the same. The coverage maps are not that accurate. It would be nice to know where the towers are located. I can get the 7 digit FCC # that is usually on the tower gate. But this doesn't tell me if a cell phone provider uses this tower and I don't think the FCC website tells this either.

    Also, how close would you need to be to a tower to get good reception? I am checking for the purpose of getting a wireless internet card for my laptop. THanks.

    Thanks for this link. I can use it to check the coverage for the new area I am moving to before I decide on a new carrier or if I the one I have is the best for the area.

    This site is so useful. I love how you can check the reception ratings of the location your at by entering in the zip code. Also, finding the reception towers are easy too. Thanks to whoever thought of this. It should've been the carriers to provide this kind of information.

    I am checking for the purpose of getting a wireless internet card for my laptop. THanks.Law, who played against Bell in county cricket, said: "He's in some form."

    "He's just keeping it nice and simple and really showing runescape moneythe class he has promised so much over the last couple of years."

    Bell added: "It was nice to get out there and score some runs. runescape goldI feel in pretty good nick at the minute. I'll keep working hard with Graham Gooch (the ex Test captain turned England's batting coach) and hopefully the performances will keep comingrunescape accounts like that.

    "I've had times when it got very tough, when I got left out of the team, when I really was scratching about for runs. runescape itemsYou try to remember those times when you're in good form."

    Just what I needed!! Thank you! AT&T is pretty bad in our place, losing reception all the time.

    Re: Check reception, tower locations, dead spots

    This leaves me with several questions.

    When the cell technology first came into being they had ads on TV trying to recruit people to put towers on their property. Remember?? I was seriously under the impression that all providers can use all towers. That was the whole point... to create a grid of transceiver points to accommodate all comers.

    I went to the cellreception.com site and asked for zip=26101. My first beef is that when you ask that site for a coverage map, it just transports the surfer to the appropriate cell provider's web site for coverage maps. Both Verizon and AT&T claim great coverage along the main areas and roads of this city (Parkersburg, WV). Those maps show the strongest coverage around the downtown area, which comes as no surprise.

    Yet, when you ask cellreception.com to show you the tower locations map, you see Verizon showing about ten towers scattered throughout this small metropolitan area and its outlying areas. When you ask the same for AT&T you see only two towers and the closest one is SIX MILES from downtown !!!

    This just cannot be very meaningful then. I've used both Verizon and AT&T and they both have clear voice and data signals in town and around. If AT&T is constrained to the use of a tower six long miles away then there is no way in hell they could be delivering viable service here! Come on, this can't be real! Come on!
