@Mnozana: This is what I get from UnwiredLabs using Vodacom PLMN 65501. Accuracy seems very low. Maybe you can send a PM to under_sky to see if he can help ...

The UnwiredLabs API does not seem to accept either of those Cell IDs. I have tried using various PLMN combinations (65519, 65538, 65573, 65574, 65501 (Vodacom), 65502 (Telkom), 65510 (MTN)) with no luck. I have also tried using just 0933741 and 0201768. Did somebody manage to get a result for you previously? If you send a PM to under_sky, he may be able to assist.

Hey guys

Would you be able to help me find this tower 207044610

Also if you know how to determine its PCI value that would be great!

Note sure if any of these help. Maps are for PLMN 65519 (Rain), 65538 (Rain), 65501 (Vodacom), 65510 (MTN). Accuracy does not seem high. Maybe you can use Google Maps street view to "drive" around and find the one you are looking for. Should be within a 1km radius.

Hey, thanks for trying. Bradley_KZN got a result previously and it showed I'm somewhere in Gauteng, which can't be coz I'm in WC.
Thanks anyway.

Thank you this has helped me tremendously. I'm playing with the frequency lock, and I discovered that the 4g lock accepts and retains the B3 frequency of 1872.7 MHZ on my CPE X. Now I know where to point the damn thing once I find the tower in that area.

Hoping rain can narrow it down for me.

I'm thinking something is wrong here, the cellID I am connected to is in the opposite direction to the tower the debug.rain.network says I'm connected to on 5G...

From what I have experienced, the CellID reported is only the 4G tower it latches on to, and it not reporting the 5G tower you are connecting to...
These 2 can be completely different towers and even in different directions.
