On this page you will find a collection of photographs of Canadian VOR systems taken by Alex, VE3GOP. In this collection are a number of shots of the VOR/DME 'YCF', which is located in a cow pasture in Campbellford, Ontario, Canada, and the North VOR 'YTP' located at the Toronto International Airport (Northfield), and the 'YYZ' VOR located at the same airport (which they call Southfield). Please note that Alex is a Navaid Technician, so wasn't trespassing on the sites when he took these pictures, he's one of the nice folks that keep them in good working order.
