Looks like quite the hike for a repeater. Hams seemed to work well this year, kudos to a job well done

Nope... further down the canyon, almost directly across from WH1

It was only about an eight of a mile hike, actually. Thanks for the good words, Robert -- I was tickled to be able to be able to model the antenna site this year and not have so much snow that I couldn't get out and test it. Staging reported that they had coverage, and main camp did, as well... I heard transmits from every winch hill, the water crossing, Sunrise Hill, and other points in between... and there was minimal scatter across the Sierra. *MUCH* better than slopping illegally-amplified CB 360 degrees off of Signal Peak!

The only challenges with radio this year was distributing/recharging batteries and radios... and of course, getting folks to call in details.
