Hi Ray,

That's really good.  Has anyone found any other "plainly visible from the
air" permanent stations with Google Earth, (or from any other Internet
mapping provider with aircraft photo's)  ?

Most of the BIIIIG stations worldwide are out of town of course, where often
there are only relatively low resolution satellite photo's available.  Just
cross reference QRZ.com with Google, finding postcodes from the one, and
typing the result into the other. USA Zip codes can be typed straight in
too. Some entertainment for a cold winter's evening...

My best result so far is Steve GW4BLE in the UK.  That's *not* a washing
line in his garden.  :-)
