If it is one of the WISP sites and they are colocated, that could be a good thing.

Once you find a good communications company let them loose to do a ‘best fit’ site model.

Alpha starts in the east and delta is the far west.

Default Fire Repeater

Something that may be possible.....

If you have any hams that are on APRS.....

set up a portable digipeater (radio/tnc/antenna/battery), the next time you WISP visit site, take it with you. See if hams in the valley can link via the digipeater.

Or if one of your crew is a ham, just schedule with a few hams in the valley (say one at each station site/area) to be available for a radio check the next time you visit WISP site. If you can talk to them via a handheld, a lower power repeater should be good option.....

just a couple of ideas

$.02

Two problems.

First one is November. Helicopter access only now.

Second issue, a coverage prediction plot done by a competent radio shop will be much faster and likely more accurate
