  • The highest of the Rabbit sites, at 8600 feet is located at the top of the Bear Mountain Ski Run. Like Sea Cliff, accessability is very limited at this site. It is only available for 5 months of the year, from early June to late October (e.g. before the snow flies). The radio provides coverage in the Big Bear vacation area and coverage in the High Desert. It has two full duplex links and a four channel 2-meter remote radio. The UHF radio is a G.E. Exec. II providing 20 watts to the antenna and the 2-meter radio is a G.E. Delta-S set at 50 watts with both encode and decode CTCSS.
