Malaspina College (now Vancouver Island University, I think) has a local high spot with easy access. Modern scouting is needed.

Good shot to CN89, CN88, CN87. VE7QV lives on the top of the hill by the microwave tower, but there is no room to park by the tower. About 500' ASL. I usually work N7AU/DN07 from here with ease.

Driving directions:
Paved road all the way.
Take the Island Highway (also called Nanaimo Parkway, or Nanaimo Bypass).
There is a traffic light at Second Street, by Malaspina College.
Turn West on Second Street and after about 200m, there is a large clearing on the right.
Park under the power lines, overlooking the college buildings.
