General. Repeater site. DeLorme Topo map says you can see Mt. Rainier from there.
Driving Instructions: On the East side of the Columbia river on I-90 (between George and Ellensburg) go south onto Hwy 26. Then take Hwy 243 south again. Travel approximately 13 miles and take the turn to Mattawa on the left. Watch your speed - it's 25 in town. Just outside of town (East) turn Left (North) onto Rd R. Stay on Rd R and when you cross the canal keep to the left of the fence and just stay on this road until you get to the top where all the microwave sites are. You should find enough room to get away for any thing that will cause RFI.
Caution - when cresting the ridge, take it slow and take a look. THE OTHER SIDE MAY NOT HAVE A ROAD UNTIL YOU HIT THE BOTTOM - straight down.
