How to find the closest signal tower?
Getting the strong and stable mobile signal is very important when installing outdoor antenna;There are many ways to find the closest signal tower.But the easiest way is downloading a app that can directly tell you the cell tower distance and location
Its long been available for Android devices and more recently became available for iPhones. It’s free and because it’s been around for a while it’s perhaps the most full-featured of any tower finder app. There are so many features, in fact, that I haven’t ever used some of them.
If you’re looking for something simpler, you can use Cell Map.This is a free download but it is available for Android only.
Fire up Cell Map on your phone and you see your own location and the locations of nearby towers displayed on a map. If you want, you can toggle between the map and a satellite photo of the area showing the tower locations.
Cell Map also displays your carrier and type of signal you’re receiving (LTE, CDMA, etc) as well as the RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) reading in dBm.
Signal Finder works much like the others – plotting tower locations on a map with overlaid circles representing the approximate coverage area of each tower. It also shows signal strength readings for each tower, and those features work fine.
