I'm always curious how the USFS chooses to deal with the logistical hurdles they face in a particular forest. The INF has Mt. Whitney and several other very high peaks that would make forest-wide communication a challenge. They have to be using a repeater net, but I'm not sure what it is or why no one has any information on it.
If I were to speculate, I would guess they would set a couple up on the front range of the White Mountains on the other side of the valley. That would let you have line of sight to almost all of the INF from those repeater sites. I just don't know if it would work with mobiles very well.
Thanks. I know Region 5 forest usually use the standard set of tones:Mick said:You have the repeater frqs now at least.
Here are the sites they use for Forest Repeater Net (168.125):
For Service Repeater Net (171.50):
You're quite welcome, and thanks for the info from me also. I love the Bridgeport Valley area, one of my favorite locations in the whole state. We also camp, occasionally, at Brown's on the Owen's River off Benton's Crossing. The info will aid in keeping abreast of what is happening in the area while I am up there.Exsmokey said:Thanks for the introduction Michael.
