Put on your tinfoil hats


This is known as the VOR. It sits on a ridge that can be seen from town and I must admit that I honestly don't know what it is for - possibly it is the relay station for phones or satalite or some device for the airport. It is an impressive and somewhat intimidating installation. It did make for a nice walk on a seemingly rare sunny day. I even got a chance to wear my MEC sunglasses for the first time here.

Alternatively... if there is anywhere in town where a UFO might feel at home landing... this is it.

It's a navigation beacon for aircraft. Nifty!
