    So many spam SMSes on Cell C lately...

    Has anyone else noticed this? All, win this, win that, gaming bonanza, etc. I've replied "out", opted out via their webaite and they keep coming. The numbers seem to change every time so pointless blocking them.

    Any RF/LTE gurus on here?

    What do you guys think about using an SMA T-connector to combine the output from a cross polarised MIMO antenna to one input? My XPOL-6 has 2 male SMA connectors. I believe the housing contains 2 antennas, polarised at 45° and -45°, respectively. My Huawei B311As router only has one female SMA...
