While it's on one of the Red Mountain towers, it's not the most high-powered signal, so if you get up toward Trussville or down past Pelham it can get noisy.

Buy an extra box of the remote buttons. Then, after the cheap / Chinese-made button fails after six months of being out in the elements, you can just put in another button. Better than trying to find a matching button post-failure.
