ALEX WIECEK'S CANADIAN VOR IMAGES

~~ GALLERY TWO ~~

On this page you will find another collection of photographs showing some of the Canadian VOR/DME systems, and were again taken by Alex, VE3GOP. In this collection are a number of shots of the VOR/DME 'VIE', which is located in at Coe Hill, Ontario, Canada (44 39 36N, 77 53 20W), and the VOR 'YSO' located just south of Udora, Ontario near to Lake Simcoe (44 14 16N, 79 10 18W). Some of these shots were taken from a drone and show the VORs from an interesting and unusual angle that most people would never get to see. 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.
