Some years ago a group of hams agreed on 146.550 simplex 2 meters in Saline Valley.  There is a repeater site on Mazourka Peak- 146.7600 Rec. and 146.1600 Transmit.  It covers all Owens and Saline Valley.  I ran a test from Big Pine to the springs and received signals loud and clear.  About 1/8 of a mile before and past Willow Creek the signal became a little weak but still was able to communicate.  Anywhere around the springs communication was loud and clear when I talked to someone on the repeater.  Coming in on the south route there is no reception until your in the valley from the grapevine.  Then its loud and clear all the way to the springs.  There is generally someone on the repeater 24/7 to talk to.  73's WA6JNG

Dated but extensive discussion so not sure if this will help. https://forums.radioreference.com/california-radio-discussion-forum/33428-death-valley-freqs.html

Also, I have programmed these channels in just in case.

Hello all,

Making my second trek to the springs mid-April and was wondering if there is a good two meter or 70 cm ham radio frequency used by most of the people venturing in the Saline Valley.
