Here is a link to an online gallery with photos i just took of my tower while at work tonight.
They are taken with my iphone...so quality will not be that great, but you get a general idea.

This is only the tower stuff, as Im not working the TRACON tonight, and im too lazy to walk downstairs, plus the lighting is horrible for pictures without a flash.

let me know if you guys/gals have any questions about anything, and i'll try to answer.

Nice, DJ!

By chance, do you know if they're using ACE-IDS at the TRACON? They hyped the bejeezus out of it on my tour of NorCal, plus showed us the Tower version of it on the SMF Tower tour I was on.

We have it here. It is cool, but it's only as useful as the person who programs it makes it to be. Smiley

Bak14 cables are arresting cables for f16 operations, kind of like on aircraft carriers. They are there incase the brakes or something fail on the 16's

And the tower is KDSM
