Oat Mountain is a general name for the entire eastern end of the Santa Susanna Mountain Range, from Mission Point on the east nearly all the way to Ventura County line at the west. This ridge forms the northern boundary to the western San Fernando Valley.
Coverage from Oat Mountain includes all of the San Fernando and most of the Santa Clarita valley, with extended coverage into portions of the Simi Valley and central Los Angeles. The site can be used for link service out of the Los Angeles area to the north and west.
