I really wouldn't pay the reactivation fee unless you must have cell service in Rachel. Remember, you can always call 911.

Amplifiers help, but cell phone traffic is line of site, so you need a combination of a strong signal and enough altitude to reach the tower. The amp would be marginally useful on the trip up 93 and the portion of the ET highway to the east of the 318/93 intersection.

I think the cell phone tower in Rachel is lower than Dave's Red Flag observation tower. It is really meant for local use.

Since analog cellular isn't secure, remember not to give out information like a credit card number over the phone.
