    bad pic (crappy iPhone picture), but i'll try and do another drive-by sometime soon with the pro glass

    5 60ft towers (or greater, hard to really tell from the distance...that and the tears of self-pity) with another 8 shorter ones on his back property
    multiple antennas on each, looks to be at 20, 40, 60 foot heights

    DAMN!!!! this place ever hits the market i think i'm gonna throw in an offer :D

    Care to give us an idea as to where it was that you went for a drive and snapped those pix? We can probably find out who owns them if you do.

    up on the mountain, east of Hamilton, ON (towards Niagara Falls)....between Hwy 20 and the brow

    I'd love to have that kind of property where i could do that...i'd be lucky to get away with a 40' at my place (in town) :(

    tho i do plan on trying for a 60' when the time comes after taking the test and progressing over to Ham

    with a network like that I'd love to see this guys arsenal!!!

    btw, sorry about the wide pic, i saved for net and thought the image was smaller than it turned out being

    Captain Kilowatt..where abouts in NS are you? was there a couple of years ago and gotta say both it and PEI, they're the most beautiful of the provinces!!!

    It looks like VE3EJ. I thought it looked like John's antenna farm and that is why I asked where the picture was taken.

    Buy them?? I spread steel metal filings around the yard and sometimes with the right conditions a tower will spring up. If I use aluminum filings I sometimes get a good antenna to sprout. I am working on a good crop right now but since it is still in the experimental stage I will only post pictures after the experimenting is done and the crop has been harvested.
