NYC RF Environment 24FEB2019

T-Mobile has begun testing in the 600 MHz Spectrum of the NYC  area. At this point it is required to vacate the Band 71 B and C spectrum band. Specifically 622 -632, and 668-678 mHz.

The data in this graph represents the NYC RF environment on February 24th 2019 from two outside locations in Manhattan. This page will be updated  as the repack process proceeds. I was surprised how fast stations are vacating the airwaves. Band 71 4g testing has begun and evidence can be seen in the the Band 71 B downlink spectra band from 662 - 667 mHz. This is  sooner that originally scheduled and we should be prepares to vacate the rest for the auctioned spectrum soon.
