Comments: Is a rental tower. Was nice to see the public doing a great job in respecting the tower site. Also Co director (MR Beard) of the FFLA did a great job in his work weekend few weeks back.

Electronics and Enroachments

Are electronic sites enroaching on tower? No
Other enroachments? Also the tail to the original tower needs some chainsaw work. Also I raked up around the old outhouse on the west slope and was able to secure that door with some rocks.
