Find out where calls are getting dropped on campus

Every school suffers from dead spots where cell phone coverage is spotty to non-existent. This can be extremely annoying for students trying to reach one another, and results in an increased numbers of cell phones smashed on the sidewalk in frustration. As a public service to your school, you have decided to expose these dead spots, and prevent all those new smartphones from being thrown at the ground in anger.
