RE: Whom Of Us Boondocks 14-days Or More At A Stretch?

40? It gets ALL the way down to 40? You poor things. (snicker) At altitude it is almost always cooler at night, even mid summer. Any other time and you can expect to wake up to at least frost on the panels. I checked the forecast for the weekend and it calls for snow Friday. No big deal, set the furnace for 74F daytime and 65F at night with a very comfy down comforter. Everyone is different and in different situations. Buddies are not a option for us as they don't like it above 7000 ft and may kill you over it. Still, seeing how others do it opens up the options for how we may do it in the future. Mex, our camp stove puts out more heat than the trailers but nothing is faster at making 10 cups of joe than a Bunn coffee maker. 3 minutes and you are done.

RE: We Boost

A booster can only boost what is already there. No signal at all and there is nothing to boost. I have all four networks and expect to be out of range at some point and time.

RE: Planning Solar Panels

My testing between poly and mono flew in the face of all that is advertised too. I could post graphs and charts and still not change any minds. So why argue it.

RE: Planning Solar Panels

Hmmm I always thought it would be best to see what your needs and limitations are. Those limitations include what fits on the roof, how much room for battery, what is the budget, and what is available. Once you get a handle on those things you can start tossing around words like PWM, MPPT, AGM, LIPO. etc. Make these decisions before those above and you may be screwing yourself.

RE: Unlimited Verizon 3G $5 a month

While ordering a 4620 for a neighbor I learned that you can use 10off as a discount code when ordering. They also have a automated system now and orders should go out the same or next day. I'll know by tomorrow.

RE: Planning Solar Panels

Should you do all of them the two up top will require their own controller. You will want to be able to really lock down the one on the side for travel.

RE: How do I stay internet safe when travelling?

I never use WiFi even in town. We have pour own hotspots to gain access to the internet.

RE: Unlimited internet

I see those speeds on FreedomPop and RingPlus that both use Sprint. I asked never because I do know what speeds Sprint is capable of and if you never went higher, it does sound like it is throttled. AT&T is capable of wicked high speeds too but my Cricket never goes over 8 Mbps because it is throttled. Band does play a big part as well as device and signal. You should be able to get to the mifi's management page by typing 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 into the adress bar while connected. There you should find a status page that will tell you signal strength and band. I can switch between 3G and LTE but the device chooses what of the three LTE bands it wants to use.

RE: Unlimited internet

Oh I know of the Sprint thread, just not that they have the others yet.
JiminDenver 05/17/16 11:17pm Technology Corner
RE: Unlimited internet

You have NEVER seen better than 6 Mbps? A lot has to do with which of the three Sprint LTE bands you are on but band 41 hits the mid 30s in Denver at 3 pm and 50's at night. It really only takes a few Mbps to give a comfortable feel to most things besides large downloads.

RE: We Boost

Using a phone you can download the app signal check lite for free and as you turn the antenna the app will show the signal strength so that you use it to know when the antenna is pointed in the best direction. Most hotspots have a status page or the like that will show the same dBm meter for the same effect.

Pushing Cricket past its limits

My Cricket phone has 10 gigs of high speed and then unlimited 2G/128k afterwards. I wanted to see how usable the 2G is and was close to the limit so I streamed Netflix until it went over. The switch took about 15 minutes but when it did streaming stopped cold. Sites like this load fine, tunein streams music fine ebay and slickdeals take a bit to load but will, only video seems affected. So for most of my use it is really unlimited except for video after 10 gigs.

RE: Whales?

We did a cruise through the inside passage and one morning we stopped in the midst of a whole pod, there were whales everywhere. What we didn't see up there was the breaching that we saw farther south in Bandares bay.

RE: Unlimited Verizon 3G $5 a month

Not too shabby if you need the TnT

RE: Unlimited internet

it wont take long to find out what the restrictions are. With every unlimited offering there are the ones that just have to stream day and night to see just how far they can push it. It took Cricket less than a week to start making changes to their terms to include possible throttling and language against unreasonable use. Granfathered unlimited Verizon plans have a higher upfront cost but you would make it up in months with lower monthly fees. T-mobile is doing the big push for subs and there are deals everywhere. You can pay much less for unlimited talk, text and data with the only limitation being how much data you can run through the hotspot. Since most of those plans include Binge on and stream on meaning Netflix, you tube, crackle and others don't count against your limits on data or hotspot, it's not as limiting as it sounds. An example is my 4gas T-Mobile 5 gig hotspot with Binge on for less than $20 a month. I stream movie after movie and will never use up that 5 gigs. Loading forum pages do count and it takes a lot of those to use 5 gigs. Last thing is do these plans include roaming. Most secondary sellers don't include it and it can be a issue when the carrier has a agreement for a large area. Much of the coverage in the mountains doesn't come from carrier owned towers.

RE: Unlimited internet

Great find Don. I haven't even seen this on HF yet. Hopefully at those prices there will be no throttling after 20 gigs or so.

RE: Unlimited Verizon 3G $5 a month

Thank you Chelle has been telling me that we can add talk and text if we have a phone flashed.
