  1. Hello, I plan to visit Caprock Canyon SP for backpacking and was wondering if I would be about to hit any repeaters with my HT? (FT3DR).



    1. Hey, Shawn – as far as I know, the closest repeater to Caprock Canyon SP is Wayside, and everyone up here thinks it’s probably too far for you to hit it from the park. Check out the Plainview TX listings.
