[aprssig] APRS in remote California - some results

Where is Plowshare?  Must be up north <g>.

As for the eastern Mojave, the W7RBV-1 station at Baker HS is not an 
ideal Digipeater station.  With 75 watts, the only digi I can 
occasionally hit with it is ONYX or W7RBV-2.  It's too low, and 
consequently doesn't hear as well as I had planned either.  The plans 
are to turn that into an IGate only and put a digipeater up on Turquoise 
Peak, a little to the NE of Baker.  This will enhance the coverage on 
I-15 between Barstow and Mtn. Pass (where N7ZEV-1 has some shadow), as 
well as north on 127 through Shoshone and south into the Preserve.  
W7RBV-2 has a little coverage west, but not much.  If anyone goes 
through Death Valley, I would be interested to know how well it does 
over there.
