Re: PSA: AT&T Doing away with $35 iPad Unlimited.

Being a short-term/prepaid service even if it's auto-paid, the carrier is under no contractual obligation to honor the initial signup price of the service, and the TOS states that they may cancel at any time without a prior notice. Unfortunately that's just the way it is, and as the saying goes "Al...

Re: ISP wants a MOFI4500-4GXELTE-SIM4_COMBO...alternatives?

It's very common on the outskirts of san antonio area. Kinda of a monopoly for us. Vtx took over rock solid from my sources. Crowded network makes it's difficult to use. If only I can find a card that would support the AWS band to take full advantage of lte, but using mofi I still dont think it wou...

Re: Cell Tower Height

I was messing around with google earth for line of sight. I almost have line of sight, but I was just making a random guess at tower height. I guess I could just stop being lazy and go climb a tree with my binoculars to find out how high up my antenna needs to be. :lol: it shouldn't matter how high...

Re: Cell Tower Height

Anyone know an easy way to find the height of a specific cell tower? cellmapper doesn't seem to have that information, or at least not that I see. antennasearch has been down for a while for me, not sure if they have height or not. Thanks -radec antenna search was the best. there's other ways, but ...

Re: ISP wants a MOFI4500-4GXELTE-SIM4_COMBO...alternatives?

PTP means Point-To-Point packet radio service, with the advantage of really long range (over 30 miles), which can deliver up to 100Mbps (in the real world is less than half), and it's expensive compared to cellular. In some areas where there's no cellular service, PTP or PTM (Point-To-Multi radio) ...

Re: I need a bit of help...

What are the highest gain antennas that I can buy, honestly? I’m at the point where dumping a few hundred dollars just for antennas is worth it. Also, what about the WeBoost situation? can it even handle the dual antenna and still see results, or is wiring it straight into my Nighthawk the way to g...

I’m 6-9 miles with hardly any LOS, will this work?
No idea without you actually trying. The situation is different for every user.

There are users though that use these high gain antennas to connect to towers over 5+ miles away with no issue.

Re: I need a bit of help...

Do you think switching to Yagi antennas would help at all? I turned off my booster and used OpenSignal to get the best idea on where to point it. I also mapped the tower it’s possibly connected to and get it pointed in that general area that match with the direction from the app and my google earth...
