Badger Pass Communications Facility
FCC Antenna Structure Registration Number 1237395
The Badger Pass facility is located about 13 miles west of Dillon, Montana just a mile south of state route 278 at North 45-12-51.5 West 112-56-26.4 (NAD 27 Datum). The building sits at an elevation of 7,250 feet MSL and has a 50 foot single platform tower. The building is a large 1,650 square feet and is constructed of 18 inch thick solid concrete walls and ceilings. Electrical power to the site has been removed for about one mile. Mac Pass Radio amateur equipment is run off of a 520 watt solar plant. The lack of AC power will provide for a unique lease agreement for the first user of the site wishing power. The building is wired for 120/240 single phase and 208 three phase power. The site overlooks a large area, including the Dillon valley and Interstate 15, as well as the Bannack and Wisdom areas and up state route 91 to Twin Bridges.
