Mt. Lemmon is the central site for CARBA. It covers the Tucson area and much of Phoenix from it's nearly 9000 foot ASL vantage point.
Our site on Mt. Lemmon is shared with S.A.R. and multiple packet nodes.
All the signals from Mt. Lemmon run to our main controller at the Mt. Bigelow hub. They are linked via microwave through this dish. The first working dish installed in the Cactus intertie system was here. It began our microwave linking project.
