RUSSELL & ANDY'S MICHIGAN
BEACON HUNT PART ONE:

On this page you will find a superb collection of NDB photographs taken by Russell Robins, N8HOQ during a beacon hunting trip with his brother and NDB enthusiast Andy Robins, KB8QGF in August 2001. Since I have very little opportunity to see what the US beacons look like it's really nice to be able to display these here, and my thanks go to Andy and Russell for allowing me to display them here, I'm sure you'll agree they're well worth viewing!

It's really great for me to be able to display NDBs from various parts of the world here, and if anyone else out there has any interesting NDB pictures they would like to share with us, or see included here please feel free to contact me with the details. I'll be only too happy to create a page in the gallery and display them for you!
