Claim of US Patent No. 9,736,846

1. A system for maintaining antenna coverage in wireless networks, the system comprising:
a radio;
an antenna communicatively coupled to the radio, the radio and the antenna located at a stationary cell site; and
one or more input components attached to the stationary cell site that are communicatively coupled to the radio and configured
to receive information on at least one of an internal and an external condition of the antenna that affects a preconfigured
area of coverage of the antenna from the stationary cell site,

wherein the information is communicated to the radio, and
wherein the radio is configured to adjust a signal provided to the antenna based on the information to modify an area of coverage
of the antenna to at least partially maintain the preconfigured area of coverage from the stationary cell site.
