Welcome to Southern California!

Last month, your editor ended up taking a vacation to one of the most beautiful parts of the United States, Southern California.

The famous, non broadcast tower on Mt Lee. Oh and that sign too.

Southern California is a mix of hills, water, history, famous places, and of course… towers!

And of course no tower guy would dare visit Los Angeles without visiting the beautiful mountain top site known as Mt. Wilson!

Of course aside from Wilson (and nearby Mt Harvard), there’s Flint Peak, Tongva Peak, and Briarcrest.

We also took a nice day trip to San Diego, and were able to get so many exteriors to update the market.
Including the famous KOGO
