There is a Dell Computer (with the latest version of Writelog) connected to high speed internet (as fast as you can get in the mountains). You can now bring your laptop and connect via WIFI within the cabin.


The antennas are supported on three towers:

  • An 85-ft. tower supports:
    • Force 12 C39XRN at 85 ft (40-20-15-10)
    • Force 12 7-element 6M beam at 90 ft
    • Force 12 C3E side-mounted at 50 feet (covers Japan through Europe),
  • A 50-ft. tower supports a 3EL STEPPIR for 10,12,15,17,20,30 and 40 mtrs.
  • A 40-ft. tower supports stacked M2 beams for 2 meters
  • Wire antennas for 30, 80 and 160

In addition, the WLSD 2 meter repeater is located at the cabin. The frequency is 146.745 (transmit offset down 600 khz).  The repeater is open and has pretty good coverage for the area.
