Grab! As a former employee of the Army Corps of Engineers, it pains me that I couldn't get up to a real dam, but it was snowed up in the high country last night, and there was ice on the canyon roads heading up to the mountains.

New Tag:
Get out and find a big dish, radar or something similar. My tag is of the Table Mountain Field Site and its "Two general purpose parabolic antennas with 18.3 meter (60 ft.) diameters are located on Table Mountain at T-22. These antennas are steerable in azimuth and elevation and have been used at frequencies ranging from 400 MHz to 11 GHz. Examples of experimental uses include tropospheric scatter on paths up to 770 kilometers in length, diffraction measurements over a mountain ridge, measurement of bistatic scattering cross sections of thunderstorms, and evaluation of typical characteristics of large antennas."

Good new tag but just a caution for folks to use some judgement. We have a number of those here in the DC/MD area and Govt security will come out nd grab you at some of them! It's happened to a couple of our local photo tag peeps.

I've been to the VLA.
It's a fantastic place to visit and look around.
The Visitor-Center is worth a stop if you have a bit of free time.

I'm a little out of location for this tag. I did find a nice Wiki list of radio telescopes. Best I can find is some satellite dishes at a local radio station that are far less impressive. Maybe the Stennis Space center has something, but that's out of my current range.
