How to Get the Best Out Of Your Cell LinQ Pro Signal Meter?
The signal meter in tandem with the app is a two-part system that works via Bluetooth connection. The data from the cell tower that you see on your cell phone is scanned and stored. Here's what happens once you have connected the phone app to the signal meter. You will notice that the towers are coded by color, which means that you can toggle by 3G or 4G, or by carrier.
- Press "Scan". The meter is now gathering tower data, which you will see by the rotating "Q".
- Next, choose a tower. You will now be able to see carrier, signal quality, location, band, DL frequency, and other tower data.
- When you choose the Live View option, you will be able to select single or various 3G or 4G towers.
- You will notice that, as you perfect your installation, the strength of the signal will regulate automatically.
- On completion of a scan, you can then customize, organize, and save the data to the Cloud. Keep in mind, though, that each time you perform a new scan you clear the preceding scan data.
- With all your data now stored to the Cloud you can compare previous outcomes to later outcomes and bring up scans from previously stored projects.
- Projects can effortlessly be transferred to a .csv file for your system design.

Commonly Asked Questions:
Q: How Is This Signal Meter (Spectrum Analyzer) Different from Others?
A: Most other signal meters only calculate RSSI values and they are not able to recall, store, or transfer scanned data. The Cell LinQ Pro Signal Meter with LinQ Meter App delivers carrier data and measures both signal strength and signal quality. Its app has a project management feature, which means that all data that has been scanned can be gathered and collected in the Cloud, ready to be exported or recalled at a time of your choosing.
Q: How Close Does Your Phone Need to Be from the Meter?
A: An average distance between your phone and the meter can be somewhere between thirty and fifty feet. This is because the app uses Bluetooth technology to communicate with the meter.
Q: Can Multiple Individuals Use a Meter?
A: Yes. Several users can use a single meter; however, each user must download the signal analyzer software, either from Google's Play Store or Apple's App Store.
Q: What Will Happen When the Scanning Button Is Pressed?
A: The spectrum gauge requires a Bluetooth link, and it is the app that gives you that connection. You will notice that once the meter has been paired with your cell phone, it will start searching for cellular movement for every channel. Whatever information the meter is able to gather will be sent directly to your app to show on your cell phone.
Q: What Type Of Information Does the Meter Gather While Scanning?
A: 3G data - Location, carrier, channel frequency, radio type, RSSI, RSCP, CellId, mcc, lac, mnc, Ec/lo.
4G data - Location, carrier, CellId, channel frequency, radio type, RSSI, RSRQ, RSRP, mcc, tac, mnc.
Q: Is a Database Used by the Spectrum Measuring Device to Gather Information?
A: A database, from CellId sent from the cellular site, is used to relate location, carrier, and type of radio.
Q: If The Word "Unknown" Appears In The Column Labelled "Carrier", What Does That Mean?
A: If "Unknown" appears, it means there's no record of that specific location and carrier in the CellId catalog. If it happens to be new Cell-Id, it could take weeks for information to be included in the catalog.
Q: Can I Export Scan Results?
A: Yes, you can export from the app. a CSV file with all information for a certain customer or specific project can be transferred from the software.
Q: If I Want to Undertake a New Scan, How Can I Save Previous Scan Information?
A: You have two options here. The first is to bring up a current project and add this data to that project; and the second is to create a new project and save the scanned data.
Q: How Much Time Does It Take to Perform One Scan, and Do They All Require the Same Amount of Time?
A: It takes approximately a minute and a half to perform one scan; however, the time taken really does vary. The reason is that the meter scans every channel and all frequency bands, and the meter has to wait until a beacon comes from phones on that specific channel. If there are no currently active cells on that channel, then you will have to wait longer before moving onto the next channel, just to make sure there aren't any beacons that have been forgotten. So, time variations are typically decided by how fast beacons are restored once functioning cells are located.
Q: Would Scanning Time Be Reduced If I Turn Some Carriers Off?
A: No, it would not. When a scan is completed the signal analyzer gathers all available information. Carrier filters is just another purpose of the software, and it won't reduce scan time.
Q: The Map View Is Showing Groups of Towers Close To Each Other – Why Is This?
A: Sometimes cell towers use numerous antenna arrays to produce a coverage area of 360 degrees. Each antenna has its own ID, so if you're scanning in an area in which there's intersecting area of coverage due to a number of antennas on the tower, you may receive information from all of these antennas. You will notice in the scan findings that there are numerous tower pins, and these will probably be displayed in close proximity within the map.
Q: Why Is It That I Sometimes Get a Diverse Number of Towers When I Run a Scan in the Same Location?
A: The reason you may achieve varying results when you run scans on the consistent location is due to changing tower strengths and capacity.
Q: What Do the Words Excellent, Good, Fair, and Poor Mean?
A: The quality of a signal is not calculated; it is directly measured from beacons collected from the cellular site.
Q: Why Are There Buttons for Each Carrier Situated on the Top of the App?
A: You will know if a carrier is functioning by the blue light on each button, so simply toggle each carrier off and on if you need to filter specific areas.
Q: How Long Will It Be before I Need to Recharge the Battery?
A: The battery will live for several hours if it is being used to scan; however, in standby mode it will go on for many weeks.
Q: Which Bands of Frequency Can the Meter Scan?
A: Currently, the meter can scan frequency bands B13, B12, B5, B4, and B2.
Q: Does This Meter Support Public Safety Bands?
A: Unfortunately, there's no support for public safety bands at this time; but we are hopeful that band B14 will soon be added.
Q: Is There Any Reason Sprint Towers Are Not Provided For?
A:The app actually does provide for Sprint, but the 4G Sprint network uses LTE tech bands B25, B26, and B41. Currently, bands supported are B13, B12, B5, B4, B17, and B2 (but not G block). The newer-technology PCS G block is included in band 25, and this includes Sprint's initial PCS spectrum.
The Accuracy of Cell Towers.
How Accurate Are The Locations of Cell Tower?
A GPS pin location will be displayed on the Cell Spectrum Meter software for each cell located; however, note that pinned positions are approximate – they don't necessarily accurately locate the GPS. OpenCell ID is used by the Cell Signal Analyzer to locate the GPS, which is an open source databank. At this point in time this is the most precise source for tower positions.
The position of cellular towers is determined by public input of RSSI cell data, and while this is extremely helpful in determining the tower's location, it does create some positional differences. These differences within the reported position by OpenCell ID and the actual position of the tower occur because:
- Cell Towers and Cells Are Entirely Different Things.
It is quite rare for one antenna to be used to create a 360 degree signal from a cellular tower. Typically, several antennas will be used, and each antenna overlays part of the 360 degree circle. Remember that every cell tower has more than one antenna, and each antenna counts as a cell. This explains why there is a huge difference between the amount of cell towers and the amount of cell IDs. It is the cell IDs that are reported with this system, and it is the cell IDs that provide the location of the signal's origin.
- Single Measurements Are Not Necessarily Equally Scattered between Cell Towers.
As we now know, it is people who provide OpenCell ID data. The RSSI data is collected when users move past a tower: this is the data that will determine the location of towers. Roads and paths used by visitors near to towers are obviously going to vary, because cell towers cannot always be approached from every side by cars, pedestrians, bicycles, etc. In the case where roads go by a cell tower you’ll also notice different distances and angles.
In these cases, measurements near the cellular tower will not be equally distributed, with most measurements originating from one specific side. Therefore, taking the average of GPS locations of the measurements will not help you accurately establish the tower's location. But it will be awfully close.
When targeting an antenna for a cellular signal booster or an M2M modem, it is important that you have a general idea of the direction in which your cell tower is located. When you're ready to precisely determine the donor antenna's position, we strongly recommend that you make use of the Live Mode function.
