What coverage? We run Nextel which doesn't have the best coverage unless you are in Mexico. The direct connect works great down there. Vegas to Reno we had no coverage until we left Rawhide and started heading towards Fallon (we were not in Hawthorne last year). Then all was good to the finish. There are cell towers in Tonopah, although I don't know who the service provider is. Hopefully Nextel has one there this year. I don't think we had coverage there last year. I was just in Hawthorne a week ago and had service. There's a lot of mountains so race radios are hit and miss unless you can relay through another chase crew or BITD. The SAT phone worked the best.
