Hwy 372, Pahrump, NV 89048 ,xpanding weather radio service Continued from front page maintenance, space and power. A projected start-up cost for this project would run nearly $35,000, McQueen said. Board Chairwoman Charlotte LeVar suggested that if this cost were shared with other communities that would be serviced, the cost for Parhump would go down. McQueen agreed and said it had been done before. The range of the frequency would cover areas as far away as Mesquite, Goldfield and far into Inyo County. Vic Johnson, an amateur emergency services radio operator said that what the Potosi site would be is a five state repeater that could be picked up at long distances given its location. Johnson added that the current signal he receives from the Red Mountain site is not dependable as it cannot be picked up in some parts of town. In addition to severe weather updates, the Potosi site would also provide daily forecasts and quick communication with media and emer- gency services in the event of emergency situation. "This is something we really need here in Pahrump," Johnson said. "It is probably our cheapest and most reli- able method of communication for the town and its weather concerns." Rainbolt made a motion to appoint Johnson as a com- mittee of one to work with McQueen and the NWS in researching options and costs that would be beneficial to the town. Board member Charlie Gronda seconded. "We would really like to be able to provide reliable and accurate weather information to the public here," McQueen said. "It will be worthwhile in the future."
