Mount Constitution Sites Inc - Lease Radio and Communications Space

Mount Constitution in Moran State Park is the highest mountain in the San Juan Islands.  The drive to the top takes a good 20 minutes to reach the 2,409 foot. Summit. On a clear day you can, as they say, see forever: Campbell River and Vancouver to the north, the Cascade Range and Bellingham to the east, the rest of the San Juans and the Gulf Islands, Anacortes, Olympia and the Olympic Range to the south, depending on customer requirements, service and frequency.  No one does it further, or better than MCSI.
