  • 'Out-of-the-box' creativity leads to a self-sustaining radio site
    High on a mountaintop in Lincoln County sites a nondescript metal box with a small solar panel attached. This is not what most people envision when thinking about a radio site. There are no 100-foot towers, shelters that look like small houses or giant propane tanks with chain link fencing surrounding it. In fact, this radio site is not only unique in size but also in how it came to be.
    Brad Smetana, ODOT wireless system specialist, repurposed a traffic control cabinet to house solar-powered radio equipment so that crews on the Pioneer Mountain to Eddyville highway project construction site could have radio coverage.
