    Are you sure this is a Sprint site? It really does not look like one (full shelter and a generator) and their coverage map doesn't make it seem like it is either.

    My Virgin Mobile (Sprint) phone running Signalloc showed the signal coming from here. It could be a shared site with another carrier because the sectored antennas were added on at a later date. The original antenna is hidden inside the monopole at the very top. The building is a small, neighborhood, convenience store type that does not have available space to house the equipment, so the shelter was installed. It is the same type as they are using at Puainako KTA. The terrain rises about 300ft behind it so the coverage area is small. I suspect it's there to cover the immediate subdivisions. The next closest cell is Puainako KTA, which is on a 40ft pole, about 3 miles away, at a lower elevation. When I'm about 1/2 mile above this site, the phone switches to Alala hill, about 11 miles away, which is line of sight from that area.
