Glacier Considers Radio & Cell Upgrades



Officials at Glacier National Park in Montana said public review began for a proposal to boost radio and cellphone service in the park. The deadline to comment is July 11. The proposal calls for upgrades to communications from the National Park Service, which uses outdated technology or can't reach remote areas of the park. Currently, cellphone service is only available in a small area of the park. Spokesperson Gina Kerzman says the proposal would upgrade more developed areas of the park, such as Many Glacier, Rising Sun, Two Medicine and Lake McDonald Lodge.
