Dont know but dont expect the tower in the back yard to help with your reception. It will not work as the signal broadcast "out" not down so you have to be at least a half mile away for you to benefit from the tower.

people kill me they don't want anything in their backyard but will be the first to complain that their service sucks or gas is high or airport delays are crazy. It all because people don't want any of that built near them.

I would love for a tower in my yard it would pay 1/4 to 1/2 of the mortgage and I would have the best cell phone coverage and data coverage their is!

thats your choice but i like living in the country, like having a view and have no desire to have a big ugly metal thing sitting in my backyard is all i said. dont matter how pretty they try to make it the darn things are still ugly. i get great reception where i live and we have no need of more towers in our area

true if you have great reception then you don't need anymore. But someone within about 3 miles of you decided to have it in their backyard so you can have great reception. Might want to thank them. If everyone had your view you would have no service is all I am saying.

Not entirely true since towers in urban areas cover 1/2 mile or even less, depends on population density. It is all in the way the panels are designed and how the techs set everything up.
