DESCRIBED BY COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY 1967 (EP) THE STATION WAS RECOVERED IN GOOD CONDITION AS DESCRIBED. THE DESCRIPTION IS ADEQUATE WITH THESE ADDITIONS-- THE SSW TOWER IS 700 FEET NORTH OF ALLUVIAL AVENUE AND 800 FEET WEST OF VAN NESS AVENUE. THESE TOWERS ARE IDENTICAL IN CONSTRUCTION, EXCEPT THE NNE TOWER HAS A MAST ON TOP. AIRLINE DISTANCE AND DIRECTION FROM NEAREST TOWN 2.3 MILES NNW OF PINEDALE.
I believe this benchmark - and the towers - are gone. The location is in the middle of the Van Ness extension subdivisions, north and west of Van Ness and Alluvial. The only thing there is very expensive homes - and no towers anywhere to be seen. (And it's been years since anyone has heard from station KARM.)
