[West] Pleasants Peak

Location - Within the greater Los Angeles basin, 25 miles southeast of downtown LA, Pleasants Peak overlooks all of Orange County, and the metropolitan portions of Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties.   This shared communications facility is situated on 157 private acres within the Cleveland National Forest, midway on the ridgeline, which extends from Sierra Peak to Santiago Peak.   Since Pleasants Peak is the only established electronic site on private property in this region, there are no expensive Forest Service fees, or permit delays.   The site is available for all wireless uses, including point-to-point microwave, land mobile repeaters, paging transmitters, LPTV, FM broadcast, MMDS, etc.  This property has been pre-approved by the Orange County Planning Commission for 10 additional 100' towers and two additional buildings.

Low Noise Reception - Special emphasis has been placed upon maintaining a low “noise floor” at the site, to allow for reception of weak signals (such as handhelds) from throughout the Los Angeles basin.   All transmitters at the site are periodically monitored for spurious signals, to insure compliance.   If you are looking for a well situated quite site, to realize the full performance from you equipment, consider Pleasants Peak.

No Arbitrary Power Limits - If you application requires operating at higher transmitter power limits than allowed by the other facilities located on Forest Service property, we can probably accommodate your needs. Let us know about your requirements and we will design the proper filter system to accommodate your need, while protecting all other users.

Immediate Availability - Space is available immediately, and site rental charges are no more than equivalent facilities in the region. We can accommodate a single repeater, or offer bulk rack space, private rooms, or ground lease, with month-to-month or long-term leases being available.  We will also build-to-suit, to our client's needs, as we did for MediaFLO. 

Stand-By Power - All of our buildings are served by underground Southern California Edison power.  In addition, we provide reliable stand-by power in the form of propane generator backup. We maintain more than 1 week supply of fuel, in case of prolonged power outages or regional emergencies.

Access - The facility is accessable by a generally all-weather dirt road, traversing 5.5 miles from Corona. We also have a large helicopter landing area available.
