    @ the Thomas knob shelter, NO!!! Even with a "Local's" phone there was no signal even in the loft of the shelter. There is a small spot (about the size of a basketball) at the Wise shelter, but it moves from year to year, usually somewhere in the front of the shelter, where I have gotten enough signal to text, ie one bar.

    I haven't really tried anywhere else up there.

    I got Cinti Bell phone.

    Yeah, I could get good Verizon reception at Thomas Knob a couple of years ago, but the people with me had no AT&T and no Sprint coverage.

    Verizon seems to be the one to have in that neck of the woods. I have ATT and get great coverage here in MS/TN(west), but I have been in some woods over that way and had zero.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    The people I was with were locals, had Verizon, said reception was great sometimes & bad to nonexistant othertimes.
    So I,d not count on coverage,,,,, but be happy IF it worked when there.

    I have at&t and there was no reception and appearently there is none for Damascus either so they may lack a tower.
