Eagle Tower Reaches the Low Desert!

Hello members. My family and I did some radio testing today of Eagle
Tower's coverage.

Equipment used: Comet SBB-7 antenna and a Kenwood D-710A @ 50 watts.

We were successful at hitting Eagle Tower as far south as HWY 111 and
Portola Ave intersection in Palm Desert.

Also as far East as Monterey Ave Off ramp & 10 FWY. I suspect it will
go farther too.

Also portions of Rancho Mirage.

And as far north as the Desert Hot Springs Ward Building!

That's pretty incredible. I didn't think this would be possible.

We talked with Craig (KF6ZAF) for most of the drive. Pretty clear.

We would love to hear back from you too!!

Eagle Tower Dedicated by Elder John C. Dalton of the Seventy


I wanted to pass on some recent news. Elder Dalton of the Seventy came and dedicated "Eagle Tower" for SCIRA, Inc. As many of you know SCIRA, Inc. was organized to purchase and maintain various repeater sites and equipment for the Bishops' Storehouse.

Special thanks to Blake and Alex Scullin for their wonderful Eagle Projects and especially to Elder Dalton for his support and encouragement!

Look for news regarding this in next weeks "Mountain News" paper based in the San Bernardino Mountains.
