Goodman Networks ATT-002-290-502 Civil Construction Quality

Checklist Overview & Training

ATT-002-290-502 Overview
The ATT-002-290-502 is an Audit Civil Construction Checklist and applies to New Site Builds, UMTS, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, Carrier, Site modifications and LTE Projects. It will be used for Third Party, Internal Quality Audits and GC Self Assessment Audits. The Checklist can be utilized on both AT&T Turf and nonTurf sites.

This document is intended to be a guide for performing


Civil Construction Audits. The Naming convention is set up so that the document number (ATT-002-290-502) is followed by the item number on the presentation (e.g., ATT-002-290-502-22) All Service Impacting findings are noted in RED, and Non-service affecting findings are noted in BLUE.

#1 Weatherproofing
ATT-002-290-502-36;
Connector Weather proofing. Butyl, Self amalgamated tape,

Canisters are all nationally approved methods. Individual markets will dictate how they wish to weatherproof the connectors in that market. (below is the butyl method) 1. Start with a courtesy wrap of the connector, adhesive side up. 2. Fill in the voids and gaps with extra butyl. Allow for a smooth transition from one to the other connector. 3. Overlap the outer wrap of butyl the entire length of the connector. Ensure you extend beyond the courtesy wrap.

4. Wrap the butyl with overlapping


2 tape. Extend beyond the butyl. 3 layers of coverage is required, up, down and back up again.

#1 Weatherproofing (cont)
Weatherproofing continued. 5. Make sure you overlap both the 2 and the tape when you apply it to the connectors. 6. Wrap the 2 tape with overlapping tape. Extend beyond the 2 tape. 3 layers of coverage is required, up, down and back up again. Make sure your last wrap is upward as the connector is dressed in on the tower to allow for proper shingling of the tape.

7. Extend the last 6-8 of tape beyond the connection. Do not stress the tape and cut it with scissors or a knife. Then apply it to

the connector with out stretching


the tape.

that you are installing. The correct hardware stack up is required. Flat washers
cannot overlap the washer next to it. It is acceptable to sandwich the ground bar but not piggyback the lugs together.
If 2 hole lug is

used follow the same stack-up

#10 Antenna Orientation


ATT-002-290-502-1 & RFDS;
quality compass to verify azimuths A declination value represents the error between Magnetic North and True North, at a specific location. Declinations can be found by zip code or Latitude and Longitude at: http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/geomagmodels/struts/calcDeclination Add the declination to the RFDS if you are East of 0 declination, subtract the declination if you are west of 0 to get magnetic North referenced setting. (REF; If you are looking at the map or settings obtained from NOAA you must compute the declination back to zero.) Always confirm that the market is utilizing this declination. They may keep one value for all sites in the market. DECLINATION - Declination refers to the measured difference between the Magnetic North indicated by the compass and the True North of the map. All antennae are set to TRUE NORTH. DEVIATION - Iron and metal objects near the compass, e.g. some watches or glasses with metal frames, will cause deviation; towers, fences, vehicles and piers made of metal reinforced concrete, and underground pipes are also potential causes for deviation. Use the following map for general guidance, it is a 2004 map, but the theory is the same: If east of the Mississippi, add the value to the RFDS; if west subtract the value. Antenna orientation: Azimuths set according to the

latest RFDS. Verify before you complete the job. You must use a Sunnto or other survey

22

#10 Antenna Orientation (cont.)

Add the declination to the RFDS if east of 0 declination or Subtract the declination to the RFDS if west of 0 declination. (An alternative method per the AT&T 502 allows you to start with a magnetic azimuth but you must utilize the declination as it is represented on the NOAA website or on the depiction below.) Antenna azimuth: azimuth variance +/- 5 degrees of RFDS, true north. Take into account the ATT market specified declination. Another method using Earth.google.com is

acceptable when verifying azimuths on a rooftop.

# 10 Antenna Orientation (cont.)


Below you can see the difference that takes place in relationship from true North to magnetic North. Because the earth leans on an axis and the magnetic North is basically straight up and down there will be a deviation between the two.

Each physical tag will be stamped with the sector, cable number, and AT&T in accordance to
the example diagram below: The letter indicates the sector and the number BEFORE the decimal indicates the main coax number on that sector increasing in a clock-wise direction. The number AFTER the decimal is only used when more than one jumper is associated with a main coax and indicates the jumper number that is associated with that main coax.

The tags should be attached with corrosion
