The changes are easy to spot, though not very exciting. For instance, they were repairing/maintaining the VOR at the time.
Two trucks and an open gate are easy to spot.
The satellite pass was directly overhead, as you can see by the communication tower sides not being visible, i.e. a direct overhead shot.
The companion microwave dish is located on Halligan Mesa at
38°30'18.30"N 116° 8'49.86"W
This system is probably related to the P25 trunk system at Base Camp, which replaced the old EDACS system. They added a dish to Bald Mountain a few

Two other vehicles are by the runway:
This is a spot where they normally park trucks, and they are absent in the new imagery, so perhaps these trucks are by the VOR and runway:
A small shack was added here:
Another new shack at

When you places Xs on your runway so as to pretend the runway is not in use, you should periodically touch up the paint. All the aircraft that land at
your unused airport do take their toll on the paint:
The southwest corner of the new imagery is at
38° 0'30.25"N 116°46'54.22"W
which is way north of the TTR. For the same date, the northwest corner appears to be
but then if you go further north, the imagery is even later.
