A 3 Pole of Wonder

Well that's 1 of the 3 poles of wonder approved today by North Ayrshire Council. (y) (Approved with no conditions)

It's one of the 2 in Irvine, still awaiting mine here in Kilwinning.

I still have everything crossed.:giggle:

Oh dear, the other Irvine pole of wonder has been refused.

No reason published so far, but I suspect it was because the area was right next to a primary school and a nursery.

Nothing so far about the only one that matters, mine. :giggle:

Getting scared to look now. :oops:

Yep, GPS.

TDD (time division duplex) frequencies for 4G such as those used primarily by Vodafone and O2 - B38/B40 - as well as C-band (3500mhz, used as n78 for 5G) needs accurate timing so GPS is used to facilitate that.

Well it's an EE/3 pole (Band 3 only), been there a few years, it's the one at Morrisons Grimsby but this appendage is only a few months old.

There's a new 5G site about a mile away. Checked on Google street view and it wasn't there last Dec 2020. This mast without 'GPS' was Aug 2018.

As Tom says above, ENDC enabled sites that can be used as the anchor site need GPS so that they are in sync with the 5G site

Good old North Ayrshire Council, 2 out of 3 aint too bad.:cool:

To say I'm over the moon is an understatement.:giggle:

Woo the date for my test hole is looking a bit more positive now folks, previously had an end date of the 31st of December but now narrowed down to 5th of October.

Very excited now that they seem to have decided on a shorter window.

I know it's not very exciting for most, but I had to share it with someone. :giggle: 🥳

Thanks for sharing.

Very disappointing Three is getting so many planning permission refusals.. I'm growing more sympathetic to their struggle.
Perhaps it’s the ugly ground units, certainly looks meh. Building a small structure actually in the park on the video and keeping the pavements clear would have gone a long way



We had Three refused on these grounds as it’s a conservation area. The Uni at the other side if the pavement could have like the park been utilised, most Gov funded bodies buildings and land should be (excluding schools) forced to give access given the Gov gets the spectrum fees, even making sites shared like the Rural & Emergency Services Network (thats had more delays than British Rail!).

U.K. governments have consistently been hopeless post WW2.

That’s great, interesting EE (T-Mobile) and Three are using CK Hutchison planning permissions... other places it’s MBNL.

One wonders how disjointed the MBNL third parties are at planning.

I might add that Three choosing to use MaMIMO for 5G instead of 8T8R is a good move as it achieves higher speeds. (Stares at EE who chose 8T8R for most of their installations). At least they've recognized the mistakes they made with their 4G and are working to bring back the old three, the best 3G network back in the day.
Which makes no sense given the mess of EEs 4/5G spectrum come 2023. Jesus it’s a mess now.

EE really have their competition with Three, BT couldn’t plan anything more than a (EE) buyout haha the 4G plans were all EE before BT got their mitts on it, now we are seeing BT at their best, amateur.
