    When they went digital around here several years ago, they never
    swapped out the AMPS sticks. They put up digital panels on existing
    towers, and put up a lot more new digital only sites. The AMPS sticks
    that were here 7-8 years ago are for the most part still in place.

    The exception, definitely not the rule....
    Do you live in out in the boonies?
    Or a low cell 'traffic' area?

    And..... most all of the carriers sectorized their AMPS sites WAY
    before digital was even implemented, in most all urban areas.

  6. True but they may have just left/abandoned the Omni's in place as
    well........
    Ya never know, he could be right. Maybe they only have a couple of channels
    now and an OMNI is all they need to maintain the AMPS requirement. Sounds
    kind of logical from an engineering sort of view.

    I guess you could have called it a rural, low traffic area when I
    moved here in '91 and signed up with BAM in '95. But it has become
    quiter more suburban and the traffic is up greatly Most of the rural
    towers they have added around here in the past 6-7 years are digital
    only.

    >And..... most all of the carriers sectorized their AMPS sites WAY
    >before digital was even implemented, in most all urban areas.


    Then if I lived in an "urban area" I wouldn't be seeing all the AMPS
    sticks, right?

    My guess (from repeated failed attempts to reach 911 on AMPS in
    certain spots) that there is only one or two active AMPS channels left
    around here. Where I live, I certainly get a much better digital
    signal than when I force it to AMPS. I doubt our AMPS service was
    ever sectorized.
