I travel from Fort Drum to Vermont frequently and have to wait until I'm in Tupper or Saranac to make a cell phone call. There is a new cell technology that doesn't require a cell tower.Check it out summer people.

The new technology is called lightradio, by Lucent. I believe the basic issue is that The Park Agency won't allow towers to be built.The light radio doen't require a tower.

Whats so friggin important that you gotta make a phone call for? How did you do it before you had a cell phone? Give me a break. You guys with cell phones that can't live without them anymore. You're just NOT that important no matter what you think.

So, what did we do before cell phones? How about: What did we do before antibiotics, heart monitors, artificial knees, inside toilets, lightswitches, phone land lines, etc., etc. Get real, we are in the 21st century.

I don't really care what someone travelling from fort drum to vermont or a bunch of summer people think. To you people we up here are nothing but a part time adventure and a source of stories when your "wilderness experience " is over. This decision is for us up here to make. This is OUR home we understand it we depend on it and we are its caretakers you fort drummers and new jersey and nyc know it alls and you APA anti growth dummies know nothing and don't deserve to be listened to. Stop in spend your money then get the hell out and take your dumb ideas with you

All it will take is one life saved and putting up a tower will have been a good decision. Not having coverage means eventually someone will not be able to notify responders soon enough to get medical attention to make a difference in saving someone. What if it was your kid/mom/grandpa? Seems like a no-brainer. Yet they drag their feet. And the APA is worried about a tower? Ridiculous.

I think a cell tower should've been put up a long time ago. I was born and raised and star lake and putting up a tower is not going to affect my life badly whatsoever!
