Regarding the antenna pointing to Pioche, Cubic runs the remote sensing for the war games and has a site about 8 miles from Pioche, which is roughly the edge of the Desert MOA.

Here is a bit of information regarding this site:

On November 3, 1998, at 0930 hours Pacific standard time, a Bell 206L-3, N946L, impacted the ground and rolled over on a mountain peak approximately 8 miles west of Pioche, Nevada. The helicopter sustained substantial damage. The commercial pilot received minor injuries and the two passengers were not injured. The helicopter was operated by Sundance Helicopters of Las Vegas, Nevada, under 14 CFR Part 135 of the Federal Aviation Regulations. The flight was contracted by Cubic Defense Systems of San Diego, California, who holds a government work contract with the United States Air Force for range instrumentation installation and maintenance. The flight originated at 0900 at Caliente, Nevada, and was to transport the crew to work on electrical equipment on the mountain peak. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and a VFR company flight plan was filed.
