A veiw of the Piscataquis County Emergency Operations Center in Milo, Maine. This is also the home of the Piscataquis ARC, K1PQ. We have an 80 meter dipole on the left tower and a new 160 dipole on the center tower. We also have a “GAP” Verticle which covers 40 through 2 meters in a small clearing behind the EOC bunker. We had trouble with snowmobiles “running over” the GAP in the winter so we “hid” it int he woods!! We also have a 2 meter verticle on the very top of the center tower at about 100 feet. The smaller tower to the left of the vent stacks is the National Weather Service 1000 watt transmitting tower.

WA1JMM explains how placing a 2 meter repeater on a hill can enhance mobile communications. Tom Iverson, Piscataquis County EMA Director was just off camera. He was our Public Official guest for the bonus points...he and his XYL signed the visitor's log.
