Public Phone At Burning Man 2008
Burning Phone used old 3 watt analog bag phones, good Yagi antennas and cable. Service was Alltel Wireless coming from the Winnemucca Mountain tower more than 75 miles away. Phones were set to 'extended talk' limiting output power to about 1/2 watt. Batterys were recharged daily using solar. Cellular Connection interface modems were used to adapt standard desk phones to bag phones.
We processed about 7000 calls and 7500 minutes.
