What specific manufacturers' RF instruments can I buy to tell me what carriers are on a nearby tower?
I am moving to a new city and deciding exactly where to buy a house. Cell phone signal strength will determine where I buy the house. I want to know what carrier to contract with for cell phone coverage at the house, to maximize my at-home signal. I'd prefer to use RF instruments (rather than websites or apps) to sense the required data as I drive around the city looking for homesites. I'm assuming that the towers' RF signals will somehow reveal the carrier.
