    I just turned up a Nokia BTS in the 1900 MHz GSM/UMTS site near the local airport and have seen some interference issues coming off of this sector. The UL Qual is quite poor even with a GMA installed. Has anyone come across a similar situation near air terminals?

    No… Are those are not interferences from your other BTS ? Have you tried changing frequencies ?

    If you get interference from an airport equipment, then you’re also probably interfering it. Which is rather worrying 🙂

    Thanks for the feedback Pix. I think you may be on to something. There are about six sectors within proximity to this area. Recently I turned down several radios on an adjacent site and saw about a 1.5% reduction in DCR for the affected site. The BCCHs, BSIC, and HSN are all different for the sectors but it looks like there may be some collisions. Should I adjust the MAIO settings to avoid hopping collisions as a start?

    Maio will not help, because those sites are not synchronized.
    As long as HSN is different, then it should be fine.

    To be clear in SFH 1×1:

    – cells within same BTS : same HSN but different MAIO per TRX

    – neighbour cells from different BTS : different HSN, MAIO has no influence here.
