Had to go up last week for some work, haven't been there in a long time. There are 2 new buildings, one for the generator. Antenna lines are in place. I will have to look for the frequencies and make a system for just Bear Den because there may be testing before too long.

Looking at Google Earth it looks like the coordinates would be 38 04 00.26 x 78 47 54.41. Is that about right? Is it the fenced in site with the gate going in on the left hand side?

I don't have G. Earth on this old slow PC, but it is the middle of 3 towers at that spot, there are 3 buildings inside the fence. The most northerly tower is an old AT&T tower that also has some low power FM non-commercial on it. The one to the south is Dominion VA Power. There are a couple of towers farther south 1/2 to 3/4 mile, one is the cable company and the other is the big FM 99.7 station. This site literally sits ON the Appalachian Trail. I don't know if there are any bear dens still around but I have seen rattlesnakes up there.
