XCB - 260kHz - Carlisle Barracks, PA

XCB - every golf course should have one.

This took some finding. As it happens, it is actually easy to spot, resplendent in a corner of Carlisle Barracks golf course, providing one is screaming along Interstate 81. At ground level one either has to approach it the long way from the club house, or grovel and scrape through a hole in the fence and briar bushes from an adjacent junk yard. Ask me how I know.

Has dropped off air, whether for good or not unknown. It did go quiet for a while at one point, then returned, so one never knows . . . Estimated at 25 Watts, it gets (got) out quite well.
