>> 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 being...to the great state of Texas.
