+Ernmark Posted January 4, 2009 Share Posted January 4, 2009 (edited) On June 17, 2004 - BDT posted unto the Forums the following text (also known as topic 73525): "Some benchmark pictures are really excellent! Sometimes I "set as background" one for my computer for a while, until I find another really good one. I propose a thread here for posting really good benchmark pictures, either your own or someone else's. Contest rules: (yeah I know, I'm always proposing so many rules; ... anyway...) 1. No intersection stations (the station IS the tower, building, etc.) Why? Well they all look pretty good, but they're not really all that 'benchmarky'. 2. The disk has to be at least vaguely visible in the picture. No - 'view from', 'the area', etc. with no PID marker in it. Why? It's gotta be a Benchmark picture! 3. It has to be a PID in the database, or at least one of its reference marks or its azimuth mark (in case they don't have their own PID). 4. No closeup of just the disk. (Come on, it's just a disk - where's the nice scenery?)" And in keeping up this great yearly tradition, I'd like have the honor of kicking off another great year of hunts, finds, & info (and of course photos) by starting this 2009 thread - also, in the tradition of pulling pictures from the gallery that were taken by other benchmarkers .....I submit the first picture - a nice seasonal photo by our own Harry Dolphin: KV4911 WATNONG 2 (RM2) Special thanks to the Dolphin for freezing his fins off to bring this picture to us while we sit inside w/ our computer & beverage! Edit (1st of 2009) to add Dolphin lingo to above sentence. Edited January 4, 2009 by Ernmark Quote Link to comment
