I can understand some people getting a little "fussy" about their property rights. But I thought this sign was a little "over the edge" as far as getting the point across. If you're wondering why the picture is a little "fuzzy".....it's because I wasn't about to get out of the car and argue about it.
I shot it (pun intended) right through the windshield as I drove down this lonely country road.
I was looking for a "radio spot" as I drove through the mountains and away from the valley.
On the topo maps, there was an isolated "peak" in this area at a little over 2,500 feet elevation. It was a "long shot" (and I was within a rifle shot from their front porch), but always worth the effort to get a little advantage with some height and no electrical noise.
I'm always looking for a good transmission point with my portable station.
I don't expect to explore this hollow anymore, since "both" of the country roads in this area "dead ended" onto someones property. It was difficult to turn the car around at the end of the road without using their driveways and driving here forced me to move slowly. It's easy to read the license plate on my car with a cheap pair of binoculars.
I love this hobby...... but I'd hate to get "shot for trespassing" on private property.
I always respect property rights but don't think (if I were the owner) I'd go to this extreme.
I think they got the point across.......
