    Now day 3 and they’re still up there replacing and moving stuff. Wish I was extroverted enough to chat with them.

    5G = Well, 5G (not 5GE or whatever ATT is pushing).
    Yeah I know. Gets more confusing with each G. I guess I am hoping they upgrade the HSPA and HSPA+ sites take them to LTE/Firstnet/Carrier Aggregation etc...

    Is it the lower array?
    Yeah I know it can be intimidating walking over and talking to guys working on tower equipment with all kinds of RF warnings and No Trespassing signs around. I have only talked to a crew one time and they just confirmed the carrier for me. Another time there was an outage and I found the tower rep and the Comcast backhaul tech at the site.

    Guess you could ask what brand panels...not sure if the tower climbers would know what Firstnet is or not.

    Yeah, the bottom array. They finished yesterday. Looks like they swapped the middle and right antennas in that picture on each sector and all of the RRU’s. Definitely a FirstNet modernization.
