Stupid directional antenna question - which direction?

So, I am looking at put in some electrons in parks that are fairly remote. If I was using my cell phone, I know what carrier I am using and I could go to a site like to see where my carrier’s antennae are. Then, I could map my sensor placement and get a sense of where I need to point my directional antenna.

How does this work for a Particle cellular device where you don’t know the carrier? Is there a better alternative than just guess, test revise?

Thanks, Chip

You can use the show carriers example firmware here. The first one (serving cell) is the one you’re connected to.

You can also use the code in the library to grab the MCC, MNC, CI, and LAC and use that to find the location of the specific tower you are connecting to.
