DON TOMPKINSON'S CLE81 NDB IMAGES

In July 2006 the NDB List held one of its regular monthly 'CLEs' (Co-ordinated Listening Events), but this one was a bit different to the regular ones; it featured "Local NDBs". For this event list members were invited to try to gather as much information about their local NDBs as they could, and if at all possible, try and supply any photographs of them as well. The response was excellent, with 41 images sent in, and below you can see the photos that Don sent in for it, which shows the NDB SB on 397 kHz at San Bernardino in California, the antenna used is a 'T' Antenna.


NOTE# - Please note that all of the following pictures are copyright of the sender, and should not be re-produced without first obtaining the permission of the picture's owner - please ask us for Don's contact details if you should wish to make contact with him.
