OpenBTS in the real world

I think I will stick to testing in a lab environment!

PS: Without anything fancy I can achieve a range of 30m line of sight if I reduce Tx power attenuation to 0 using the the OpenBTS “power” command which sets attenuation of the Tx power relative to the maximum base station power. It has two values (“max” and “min”, but for a small base station it’s easier to set them to the same value).
