Anyone recognise these eNB details?

So my main mast for broadband today on Liveremere road went down this morning, been down most of the day. Took all MBNL services with it also and those on adjacent masts.

Whilst furiously trying to recover some essence of connectivity, I discovered my VN007+ had connected to this mast in the meantime.

I've checked cellmapper for the eNB details and it doesn't exist, so, presumably this is a brand new mast, somewhere in my vicinity (although not likely close as it's only picked up on B28 with high gain LPDA on the roof).

Question is, where is it and does anyone recognise it?

What does the cellmapper app show if you insert the SIM? It could just be the web interface of the router showing incorrect data.

Might be best going for a little walk and scanning it yourself - perfect weather for it too!

I have 3 newbie cells near me kocz and all have 50*** eNB numbers.
I think new Ericsson antennas all use this numbering method on three.

I've got no chance, I barely get 118dBm with external mast and antenna, not going to get a whiff with my phone.

I think Wee Bear has hit the mark though, I reckon it's a new pole somewhere.

Popped a three SIM into my phone and went driving. Drove practically within a 10-20 mile radius to my house with cell mapper open and didn't pick up the B28 mast at all, weird.

Might chuck another antenna on the router and swing it about, see which direction picks up the best signal, should get me a good idea of the area it comes from

Cellmapper doesn't work for me either, there's a new 3 mast near me which isn't on the map and I'm not able to add it, maybe it's not live yet even though it was installed a few months ago.

Have you checked 'Show low accuracy towers' is selected pollax?

As far as I remember these settings are off by default and won't show any new masts that have been seen by any user submitted data.
