I found this abandoned building with what looked like some sort of radio gear while hiking near Mono Lake California.

The shed on skids

Does anyone know what this was originally used for?

  • I suspect the dish was on the tower. With a dish antenna, it is unlikely to be a radio repeater. More likely transmitting data from the location to somewhere else. Could be weather, snow pack, or something else.

  • On second thought, the dish could have been a back-haul route to link a repeater into a network, so it could have been an old repeater.

  • Likely a repeater, those are all over the place in remote areas for local park and gov. comms.
