I am wondering where i can access actual physical site locations for all of  Vodafones sites in the South Island and eventually in the north?

i am hoping to locate sites for directional antenna pointing across the country.

I have been told you can get GPS Locations but i am unsure - if you have any ideas please PM me if this needs to be kept low key

cant you just wave it around till you get signal?

Some TV installer meters will go up to 950MHz if you can borrow one and aim it for the maximum amount of sound from the squeeler in the meter? Or do you need to hit a specific site?

I know when we were trying this at a mates batch who had no t3g coverage we go on the roof with the antenna and him downstairs with it in the data card, it was pretty much anywhere it could be pointed and still see the good speeds, in the house there was nothing.

Thats the easy bit, we have the meters and also plenty of phones in field test, Having GPS locations allows me get a directional antenna 50-60 km away pointed in the exact direction of the 3G site with out having to hunt,

Also allows me to see and provide a remote solution that my antenna installers can install with ease anywhere in the country and then use the meter to maximise speeds.

I am assuming you have already tried contacting VF for this information? This information is available in some cases from them directly however the usual NDA's etc apply and it may not be worth the hassle for what you're after.

There are no public lists as such but the Ministry of Economic Development RSM department does maintain a list of all registered radio users in the country and their SMART database does include details of virtually all Telecom and Vodafone sites. This information can be viewed online or you can download the entire database which is a standard access database. This information is not 100% accurate however and may not include all sites or recent sites.

Yeah thanks, i have attempted but failed. I have other options available. I will take a look at the RSM site.

I am more than happy to sign NDA, my business is about improving end users experiences so from that point of view the more valid info i have the better i can serve their customers.
