Mount Rose Relay Peak - Now and Then

Mount Rose was a radio relay station on AT&T's first transcontinental microwave route, and was noted in AT&T publications around the time of its construction as being the station with the highest elevation on the route at 10,075 feet. This section of the transcontinental microwave route was opened for service on August 17, 1951.  I have included some historical pictures related to Bell Telephone as well.

It is now owned by High Sierra Communications which was founded in 1982 and is owned by Dave Metts, K7UI.
