Well I can certainly tell you the here in SW Missouri you do not have to be very far from town or the interstate for the cell phone reception to really suck. I can stand on my back deck and see a tower at night and go around to the driveway and see a tower The lights are the give away at night. surely those are broadcast towers but I have not seen one of those lately that did not have cell phone antennae all over it. With towers obviously visible I can barely get two bars on a good day, 1 or zero is more common. Anyone who is coming for a vist is advised to call me from the edge of town because once they are out of town it is doubtful that they can make contact. While looking for land and house. The realtors phones were constantly going dead. I have been told that it has something to do with the geology (great depth of lime stone some of it with lots of iron and historically it was mined for blast furnaces in the richer deposits. I would not know about that but cell phone recpetion outside of town or 5 miles from the interstate essentially vanishes in many places around here. especially in any valleys. It is not just my service either because others with various services can"t get a connection either. Our communication here is either land line or landline DSL $attelite $service is available.but much of that still requires a land line for the uplink. I hope that helps

Especially an area that has cooler temps with low humidity in the Summer.
