I don't understand. You say you want 3 lines from a file, but the 1st line of output you show comes from the first column of five (non-adjacent) input lines, and the 2nd and 3rd lines seem to come from the second column of five other non-adjacent lines.

What criteria are you using to select what you want to appear in the output?

Please use code tags as required by forum rules!

I have to second Don Cragun, as it is a mystery to me what be your desired output and what be the logics to achieve it. Please explain in plain English what comes from where and goes to where, so we can start helping you.

Is this what you are looking for?

Code:
nawk '/UtranCellId/ || /administrativeState/ || /aseDlAdm/ || /aseUlAdm/ || /qQualMin/ {a[++k]=$1;b[++i]=$2}
END{
for (j=1;j<=5;j++)
{printf ("%s \t",a[j])
}
printf "\n"
for (j=1;j<=i;j++){
printf ("%s \t\t",b[j])
if ( j % 5 == 0)
{
printf "\n"
}
}
}'

i tried this one

Code:
awk -F"" ' BEGIN {
print "UtranCellId administrativeState aseDIAdm aseUIAdm qQualMin";
} /(UtranCellId|administrativeState|aseDIAdm|aseUIAdm|qQualMin)/ { si=$NF;getline;pn=$NF;getline;ld=$NF; print si, pn, ld; } ' file 1.txt

but the output is

Code:
UtranCellId administrativeState aseDIAdm aseUIAdm qQualMin
UtranCellId                          MDN407WI1 administrativeState                  1 (UNLOCKED) aseDlAdm                             500
qQualMin                             -18 qRxLevMin                            -115 usedFreqThresh2dEcno                 -14
UtranCellId                          MDN094W1 administrativeState                  2 (LOCKED) aseDlAdm                             400
qQualMin                             -18 qRxLevMin                            -115 usedFreqThresh2dEcno

i'm looking for

Although you didn't bother to improve your specification, I think I picked up on what you want.
Instead of splitting the header line into an array, and then test all the $1s against this array in a loop for each input line, I dreamed up this one replacing the header text with its value for every instance of the datasets:
Code:
awk     'NR==1          {Ln = "UtranCellId administrativeState aseDlAdm aseUlAdm qQualMin"  # header, used for data line format
                         print Ln                                                           # print header
                         tmp = Ln}                                                          # prepare data line
         match (Ln, $1) {if (RSTART == 1 && tmp != Ln) {print tmp; tmp = Ln}                # found new record - print old one, prepare new data line
                         sub ($1, sprintf ("%*s", RLENGTH, $2), tmp)                        # put data into data line with correct field lenght
                        }
         END            {print tmp                                                          # print last record
                        }
        ' file
UtranCellId administrativeState aseDlAdm aseUlAdm qQualMin
  MDN407WI1                   1      500      800      -18
   MDN094W1                   2      400      300      -18

If you need the entire state string incl. (LOCKED / UNLOCKED), make " +" the field separator, yielding
Code:
UtranCellId administrativeState aseDlAdm aseUlAdm qQualMin
  MDN407WI1        1 (UNLOCKED)      500      800      -18
   MDN094W1          2 (LOCKED)      400      300      -18
