High Sites represent non-residential, permanent, radio installation locations. They provide good line-of-site locations for residential and other high sites to connect to, allowing the construction of a more stable and resilient mesh network.

Generally, high sites are extremely restricted locations, with limited access, authorized personnel, and careful control over what radios and services are hosted at the location. This is the case for both commercial and volunteered locations. Making changes are such sites can take months, sometimes years, to negotiate and implement requiring the cooperation and coordination of many people and organizations.
