Found Reference Mark, Witness Sign on Tree!


Recommended Posts

See the Deerfield2 (NGO520) benchmark for the log. The original Deerfield (NGO519) was replaced because of construction, but apparently since 1973 they've done a lot more.


The station mark is nowhere to be found (see the photo -- there's a 2-foot steel disc, but it's not hiding under there either. The Witness sign was nailed to a tree at some point (not mentioned in the official history), and Reference Mark 4 is still there.


Quite funny, actually, but sad that these things don't get maintained.

Per the recovery notes it was still there in 1993 as found by US Power Squadron. May be buried?

It's possible but I wasn't going to start digging up a residential neighborhood with a 20' circle of accuracy (dig a hole five feet wide and five feet deep every day...)


RM4 was at the surface not far away, I wouldn't anticipate the station mark would be far below ground.
