>>Hi folks,
>>   I am now in Austin, Texas this weekend visiting my brother and we were 
>>down in Gruene south of Austin.  Went west out of Gruene on Texas 305 to 
>>281... south of Blanco.  Just before 281 we came upon a great location with 
>>a whole lot of tower.  Around Spring Hill????  Dunno, not from around here. 
>>  Just wanted to know who that was.  IT was a fine installation with a lot 
>>of tower and beams on a great hill top.  We were going to drive up and see 
>>the house, but no tresspassing sign and knowing that Texans could be 
>>carrying rifles and guns...we decided to take a picture and move on.
>>   Just wondered who's station that was.  Marvellous.
>>   Lee - K0WA
>>   Displaced from Kansas for the time the great state of Texas.
