    It could be great for radio if you live on top of one of the mountains.

    Unfortunately, here in CA "most" of the good mountaintop locations are state or federal protected lands and nobody lives there -- but I know there are some exceptions.

    Yes Indeed a very interesting & very longggggg article. Especially since I have been commuting and working out of town and up in the Central Valley. I certainly get a better idea of what I am looking at when I see miles and miles of agriculture driving up Hwy 99. It is no wonder that my #1 driving snack food staple just happen to be pistachios and/or almonds. I just never realized how much pomegranate was being produced commercially. I have however noticed the high price of those fruit in the market. Surely, the demands of the Resnick's own conglomeration has helped increase the value of such a high yielding fruit species. I am surprised they dont have more invested in the Southern California citrus industries. I would/could blame them for the prices of avocados too.

    I had a friend that had a mining claim and cabin on the east side of Onyx peak, we hit Quartzite, AZ with an ht, ran a 300' wire and killed it on field day. That's in the San Bernardino Mtns east of Lake Arrowhead.

    Beautiful land, amazing differences from coast to inland to mountains. Many fond memories as boy in Bay Area, when we walked through apricot orchards to get to school! "Hey son, don't be eating any of the fruit." " No sir." Unless it had just fallen ripe off the tree of course. Lived again there, in Cupertino, in the 80's while in the electronics industry and when the last grain elevator came down, that was the signal. Santa Clara Valley became Silicon Valley and it's not quite " Do You Know the Way To San Jose" land today. Shoulda kept the house, can't believe what it is worth today!
