    This (almost) has nothing to do with analog of digital! It's simply
    increased usage and essentially creating more cells via more directional
    arrays per tower and higher tower density.

    They use the same frequencies, there are not digital vas analog antennas.
    Just arrays that cover smaller areas so one can have more cells.

    Did you read the part of my post before the "HOWEVER...."?

    It was my impression that even though CDMA and AMPS use the same frequency
    bands, they cannot be on the same exact frequencies at the same time, and,
    since they are different types of transmissions, need separate transceivers
    and antennae.

    And correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that on AMPS, the phone always
    transmits at full power.

    Did you read the part of my post before the "HOWEVER...."?

    It was my impression that even though CDMA and AMPS use the same frequency
    bands, they cannot be on the same exact frequencies at the same time, and,
    since they are different types of transmissions, need separate transceivers
    and antennae.

    And correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that on AMPS, the phone always
    transmits at full power.
