Another (possibly crazy) idea is to find some of the old units that you know 
and love, maybe on eBay or such.


Just out of curiosity, where are you/they going?  I think your previous msg 
mentioned skis, so I'm guessing cell phone towers in hard to get-to places.  
Do you have any troubles finding people who think that mixing skiing and 
hi-tech is fun?

Most of the places that fit that description in the Sierra that I'm familiar 
with (Tahoe area) have a somewhat reasonable road in the summer.   Of course, 
all bets are off in a good blizzard.  (Do things never break in good weather?)
