    Dude-Count us as going only if RPI is there. We have a long list of people who want our tickets if we do not go.

We're three years later now, so it's 7.
    I had forgotten that.

    I'm ecstatic any time we get mentioned in an game recap (or the like), so this was certainly quite fun. It will go up on the Pep Band closets next to Brian Sullivan's write-up on us from the playoffs a few years ago and the letters we've received from players/alumni over the years.

    EDIT: Clarkson sucks.
    Wow. That's like band porn.

    Don't forget babo.

    I am not exactly sure-but i think the tower on top of Blue Mountain which has been up there for over 5 years is AT&T.

I am a novice at this kind of stuff so i am not sure what towers allow you to connect to them. For example, Audi uses T-Mobile as its internet connection and i wonder if that would allow connection to the verizon or AT&T towers up in the Adirondacks?
    I highly doubt it. Granted, I typically shut off my telephone when I go up there, as constantly searching for a signal drains the batteries.

    Not exactly true. While Verizon is still the best coverage, AT&T has also benefitted from the new towers they are installing in the I-87 cooridor - an effort which followed the high profile accidents/deaths. The plan is for several shorter towers to be installed along the northway to "daisy chain" cell signal from tower to tower along the interstate. In addition to these, the biggest improvement to come on line is the franken pine tower located behind the Neighborhood House in Keene - which has drastically improved coverage in the High Peaks. As part of the APA approvals, in an effort to minimize redundancy, the new towers are being shared by the providers so all of the companies are benefitting. I'm in the area several times a month for work and pleasure - and am able to test the system regularly as I have both Verizon and AT&T phones. The coverage is much better - but still has dark zones - the worst of which being north of Exit 30 in the Lewis/Willsboro stretch of I-87.
