Have you checked if any local ham radio repeaters are used regularly by the local club?
I built a site and app you can use offline once installed, that shows your nearby ham radio repeaters - https://hearham.com/

Luke, thanks! I found www.repeaterbook.com and was able to look up local repeaters there.

Thanks for the link! Looks like a great website.

I found this post to be very interesting! I have helped setup a few HAMs and GMRS radio operators with solar solutions as well as advice on batteries and inverters.  I also climb the towers!

Angyl , thank you so much for the photos! It's been awhile since I first started asking about this, and finally, I think we'll be getting everything set up this winter. So I will likely be back with more questions.
 
I think they should change the spelling to Sandy Eggo. This tiny ad agrees with me.
