    Anyone know what the radio building/shack at the road stop at the top of the independence pass road in Colorado is?

    Pics? I've driven the pass several times over the years, I remember a parking lot and trails you can take a walk on, perhaps some toilets, but not a radio shack.

    Hmmm, the last time I drove it was about four years ago and I don’t remember a radio shack at the summit either. I looked at Google maps satellite view today and didn’t see anything that looked like one, though I could clearly see vehicles and the latrine buildings.

    Could you provide more information?

    Not sure about the full kit there but seems like there's at least an APRS radio based on the last time I went up there. (Last year)

    Thanks, now I see it in the satellite photo. Solar cells on the south side of the roof.
