Found it at 21:45, 14 September 2003 in good condition. It is a rotating beacon supported on a four-legged tower. The tower is approximately 55 feet high and painted red and white. The rotating beacon alternates a green and white light. There is a mast for a windsock on the easterly side of the tower, presently without a windsock.

WGS84 coordinates for the mark found by 5 minute occupation with 6 strong satellites and 2 WAAS satellites.
