Cell service in Potter's
« on: September 11, 2016, 02:20:03 PM »
Hi

I have an Eggfinder that I haven't soldered yet, and was wondering whether I'd have any issues with a cell based tracking solution until I get my act in gear.  Is there good cell service in the area?

Thanks in advance.

I have reasonable service on AT&T at the pads, but its sometimes sketchier out in the fields.  Others may have other experience on other networks.

Verizon is usually ok (3G), sprint is a no go. there are some really weak/dead spots out there though.

Sounds like it isn't as reliable as I'd like it to be.  Thanks all.

You can back it up/replace it with a RF tracker, which is what I would go with...
