You are confirming the advertised coverage maps for both providers.

Interestingly, Verizon claims to offer an extremely small coverage area along the southern shore of Feldtmann Lake

TMobile's coverage follows AT&Ts while Sprint resembles Verizon. Have good trip.
8 trips, 1975 x 2, 1976 x 2, 1978, 1985, 2000, 2013

I have ATT and had signal while at Rainbow Cove. Also had signal for most of the boat ride over from Grand Portage. Ended up getting a Canadian tower while on feldtmann ridge fire tower.
