W7I Special Event Station - "Mile High Island in the Sky"

'Highest Fresh Water Island "On the Air" in North America'
So far as we know
Alcova Reservoir was at 5498 feet AMSL at the time of the event. Our operating position was within a couple feet of the water level.
If you know of another fresh water island in North America that's been operated for a 24 hour period at a higher elevation - please, let us know!
