No Signal in Ripon

That website is very cool.. But.. I type in my post code and it says I have no Station Controllers anywhere! Not even a Base Transceiver Station!

Thats because you don't have a mobile phone really. I bet you have two tin cans tied to some very long string. :robotwink:

That website is interesting.. I have loads of phone masts close to me, as i guessed, a UMTS and GSM phone mast for o2 a few hundred meters away, yet i get extremely poor signal in my house. Could this be because that there is loads of trees on the area? Checking o2s site, I should get 3G and HSDPA in my house, yet on the top floor of my house im lucky to get 3G (best reception area).. Any ideas on this?!

The type of material your house is made of could definetly be a factor. Trees won't make much of a difference don't worry.

I generally dont get reception in the area, if im downstairs i only get 2 bars on the windowseal, when i go outside i dont get any, and now that i think of it, there is a dead zone very very close the 2 masts, my road and area is really bad for reception, im really confused!

Do you live in a dip?
Usually the BTS can't locate anything beneath it believe it or not.

If it's an issue call and try and speak with Networks..

Funny thing radio waves

But 3g is on 2100 mhz same as wifi and we all know what walls etc do to wifi.

Normal o2 is standard gsm on 900mhz that penetrates buildings better.

Buildings can have a big effect and the o2 webmap only predicts street coverage.
