This is alongside dirt road with meadows and easy to setup. There is unlimited space and you are pretty high against Santa Rosa ranger, which is more to east which matters for MSK season

Yellow Peak is a fire lookout tower (unstaffed) in the Sheldon National Antelope Refuge.

A very good location, including some cellphone tower access, very RF quiet (compared to Fox mountain which was very noisy).

The CN91-DN01 grid line crosses CA Hwy 299 about 9.3 miles east of Cedarville CA, where there's a wide spot that lets you park well away from the highway. This is a wide-open plain a good distance from the mountains on both sides.

The grid line is a few hundred yards west of the border between California and Nevada, since the state border is not exactly on longitude 120.0. The road becomes unpaved as it enters Nevada.

Breakfast outstanding at Bakery in little town of Cedarville, CA.

Driving directions: From Cedarville, drive east on CA-299 about 9.3 miles, crossing over Middle Alkali Lake until you reach the state line.

Denio Junction is the intersection of 140 and 292.

If you need supplies or a motel, Denio Junction (not Denio!) has gas, a 6-room motel, and a bar and grill. The grill is open 8am to 6pm, the bar till 9pm, and they're on Facebook.

Alternatively, a little north of here is Fields, OR (DN02), 26 miles north of Denio Jct. Fields has a 1-pump gas station, a general store (and pretty good milkshakes), a small cafe/kitchen, and a 2-room motel.

Petr AG6EE: Don't go here. The GSM tower is hanging low sending all its RF into your antenna.

Al W7KHD: Fox Mtn is SE of Duck Lake Valley, NV. Has a good 360 take off, maybe because of the lack of any other mountains that are taller or close. There are communications towers up there, which causes problems on the air.

Mike KB7ME: There's actually a decent operating spot below the summit which gets away from noise Petr mentions. Photos above are from an ATV trip a while back, rockhounding with XYL.

Driving directions: Old Camp Canyon Rd is normally in pretty good shape.

Restrictions: The wind blows hard up there.
