LOL.. I know there is a topic cop roaming around here somewhere...
I figured verizon ON-LINE service might have such a site since they have
coverage maps :-)
Mea culpa.

The Verizon Online group is for Verizon (landline) broadband internet
service. Your question is very much on topic here in
alt.cellular.verizon. Unfortunately, I know of no site which will let
you search for specific cell provider sites. The closest you will
come is looking through tower registration databases. But since the
providers lease space from the tower management companies, it can
often be a guessing game.

But here is a list of tower companies I compiled some time back.

I suggest that instead of trying to call Verizon Wireless customer service
you log on to your "My Verizon" page and send them an email. I did that a
couple of years ago and actually got a call from Verizon Wireless technical
service. They helped my line up the antenna for the cellular repeater that
I installed so I could get better coverage in my house. My original calls
to customer service didn't have very good results but the email explaining
what I needed worked fine.

The cellular database for antenna structures is here.

Look for Verizon Wireless and Cellco Partnerships towers registered with
the FCC.

They can run, but they can't hide from the FCC's licensing system.....(c;]

You might also use the ULS, Universal Licensing System to find the
actual cellular license of Verizon or Cellco Partnerships for your city.
When you open their license record, click on the LOCATIONS tabs. The
URL above is for their system license KMKA205 in market CMA-026 in
Phoenix, AZ.

The lat/long of every transmitter in the system is conveniently located
for you on their very license form, as in:

Location 1 Fixed
Arrow Location 1 Details Coordinates
17022 N. 61ST AVENUE
GLENDALE, AZ
MARICOPA County
33-38-23.1 N , 112-11-31.6 W

Location 2 Fixed
Arrow Location 2 Details Coordinates
7620 E. JOMAX ROAD
SCOTTSDALE, AZ
MARICOPA County
33-43-37.1 N , 111-55-00.5 W

Location 3 Fixed
Arrow Location 3 Details Coordinates
13001 N. 175TH AVENUE
WADDELL, AZ
MARICOPA County
33-36-09.1 N , 112-26-06.6 W

Location 4 Fixed
Arrow Location 4 Details Coordinates
1701 S. 94TH AVENUE
TOLLESON, AZ
MARICOPA County
33-25-52.2 N , 112-15-44.6 W

Their license is modified with a new application to get a building
permit from FCC to expand their system. Those go into the FCC Register
with the Commission upon license modification application.

It's too bad FCC doesn't give you a KML reference to each tower to plot
them on Google Earth for you. Maybe someday....(c;]

Don't be too shocked to see how very FEW towers they actually possess
outside the vast big cities. All these companies operate their systems
on a shoestring to maximize shareholder profits, including Cellco
Partnerships, LLC.

Bet there's no tower in your area......go see.

If you pick the tower you want and click on DETAILS, you get one of
these:

http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsS...LocDetail.jsp?
pageNumToReturn=1&keyLoc=5013565&licKey=12936

which is the details of the Verizon tower on Jomax Road in Scottsdale,
AZ. Each antenna 120 degree sector is listed as to its antenna pattern,
range, ERP (effective radiated power), etc. for you to see.

CDMA allows 24 users on a channel, times the number of channels on their
license, which I forget at the moment. The ERP listed is TOTAL power
output, not channel power output. So, to find out how much ERP is on
the particular channel you're using at the moment, you have to divide
the power by the channels to get the channel power. It isn't much to
keep it from overlapping with the next cell down the road.

http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsS...chAdvanced.jsp

Use the advanced license search....

I did a geosearch and found:

http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsS...sp?licKey=8884
for Cellco Partnership
but it's only got one location on PCS in Michigan City, IN.

I wonder what shell company VZW is using in IL. I did a geosearch on
just Verizon with just IL as the target and found:

Specified Search
State = Illinois
Radio Service = CL, CW, CY, GR, GX, YC, YD, YS, YX
Name like Verizon
No matches found

They must be using another shell company name for the licensee in IL.

Cellco Partnership is the local shell company, here. Doesn't seem to
work in Chicago.

Ah, try this! On the first page of the advanced search, don't enter any
name. Click on ACTIVE so you don't see all the dead companies and
acquisitions, Click on CELLULAR LIKE on the type of radio service so it
gets all the various specialized cellphone companies then click
GEOSEARCH at the bottom. Pick Illinois from the state list, but not a
county so it will get the whole state. SEARCH and wait for it to FIND
THEM ALL! Now you have pointers to each active licensee in IL in any
Cellular-like service. Cellco Partnerships IS listed several times.
You can sort the list by NAME so the search lines them all up together
and research which NAM (location) is queer to your area. OPen the
license and click the LOCATIONS tab to see each transmitter location
licensed by FCC. You now have them all....probably....maybe....Why is
this such a problem. Who's hiding the map?!

What a huge list of cellco companies you never heard of! Verizon isn't
listed anywhere as a licensee and Cellco Partnership has no licenses in
Chicago, per se. ***??

"Shell companies" is another one of your incredibly mis-informed statements.
Is absolutely everything some sort of conspiracy to you?

If you actually bothered to inform yourself about the history of most cellular licenses
and the original consortiums that obtained them you would know just how how idiotic
your above statements are.

Back in the beginning of cellular, an MSA could (many times was) made up of smaller territories.
Example: the Seattle MSA had Olympia, Tacoma, Bremerton, Everett, etc, etc. that made up the MSA.
These smaller entities actually could have a different set of licensees, so when carriers built out the
MSA, they had to form entities such as "Cellco Partnership" to actually build and run the MSA.

Then we have all of the M&A over the years...

Sorry Larry, no big conspiracy to hide something nefarious from you here.
Just a bit of business history.

I doubt he will ever admit what twisted him so badly. But he is good for
a laugh and definitely a waste of time to engage because he is
absolutely convinced his bizarre ideas are correct.

I wonder how many towers they have in Griffin, Georgia? I am blind and
can't see the maps or anything, and can't tell if they are on the
northside of Griffin or not.

You should not concern yourself with towers!

What you really care about is coverage! Can you make or receive a call
in any place you are likely to be?

If you can do that, you can hardly ask for better! If not, you need to
talk to Verizon Wireless about the problem.

Also note that not all cell phone base station antennas LOOK like
antennas. In sensitive areas considerable effort is made to make
antennas less noticeable!

Finally, you can buy and install a cellphone repeater that uses a high
gain directional antenna pointed at the nearest tower and will give you
coverage in a limited area. You may be able to share the cost with
several of your neighbors if they have problems similar to yours.

Your best bet might be to ask Verizon Wireless where their towers are in
your town.

Verry good idea. I will ask them the next time I get by the store. I am a
