Vistas from Brown County State Park, Indiana, EM69vd

Here are some photos of our trip to Brown County State Park, EM69vd near Nashville, IN.  It is a good microwave site in most directions. The scenery is spectacular.  I bet the fall colors are extraordinary.  These pictures were taken around 1:00 pm CDT on Sunday, September 20, 2015.

                       Here is a me looking southeast towards Dave K4TO in EM77vx

                                   KO0Z and KC9ULA at Brown County State Park southeast vista

                                                    Looking towards the northeast

                                   Southwest is looking into the trees, but not bad west and northwest

                                  Debbie, KC9ULA and Kip at the North Tower.  Looks good towards
                                  the north, but a hefty climb up stone stairs.  We didn't even try the climb with
                                  radio gear.

                              View towards the northeast and Ron, W9ZIH in EN51nv

                                Woot, woot!  I just made a 135 mile Q with Dave K4TO in EM77vx

Brown County State Park EM69vd Microwave Sites

Here is a jpeg map of Brown County State Park near Nashville, Indiana in EM69vd.  KC9ULA and myself, KO0Z) mapped out the vistas which offer a clear view to the horizon.  The vistas are along a paved road on a ridge with typical elevations around 1,050 feet (320 meters).  I've marked the vista openings to the horizon in degrees so as to better plan where an optimum spot for QSO attempt could take place.
