"The Knoll Open Space" offers hiking access to a very promising hilltop. This is higher than almost everything else in the miserable sliver of dry land in CN75. This would be a great spot for portable operation but you'll have to hike everything up to the top.

The Knoll is a hilltop purchased by Lincoln City in December 2014 from a developer in distress. It will eventually be developed into a park with foot trails, but as of June 2015 is gated off to traffic and is overgrown.

Driving directions: The turnoff is opposite the entrance to Roads End State Park.

Restrictions: No parking, so arrange for someone to drop you off with your equipment and then park a half mile down the hill at sea level. Trailhead is among expensive homes with an active neighborhood watch.

Liberty Inn at Lincoln City is a nice hotel on the CN75 side of the grid corner. Rooms on the top floor have a nice view of the ocean. Liberty Inn is entirely in CN75; the grid line is at the Inn's south fence.

It's on a hillside with propagation as good as you'll find anywhere in CN75. We had strong signals into the Portland area and contacted the major stations in Seattle from the back corner of their parking lot.

Driving directions: From Hwy 101, turn north on Logan Road. Drive 1/4 mile.

Roads End State Recreation Site is a parking lot on the beach. It has a ridge behind it to the east, so it is not a particularly good location, though it is public. There are restrooms and fresh water and lots of foot traffic.

From this state park on the beach, you have an excellent view of where you want to be, up on The Knoll Open Space. In June 2015, I'm not sure that anyone living there really appreciated me pumping a kilowatt at 50.140 MHz into their expensive homes on the hillside. But enough of it reached Seattle CN87 that I finally completed a few contacts.

Driving directions: Turn west off Highway 101 opposite the McDonalds on NW Logan Loop Road.
- You pass into CN75 just before you get to the Liberty Inn.
- Continue almost one mile down Logan Loop Road.

Restrictions: Day use only. Open 6am to 10pm.

2014-01: The hilltop is fully developed and there's no good place to park. - Barry K7BWH

2001-12: This site is in a subdivision under construction. Houses are going in all of the time, so it is hard to say what you will run into. It is on high ground west of Highway 101, and can only be listed as an "adequate" operating location since there are no "good" ones in this oceanside grid.

Driving directions: This is on the west side of Devil's Lake in Lincoln City.
- Turn west from Highway 101 onto "NE West Devils Lake Blvd"
- Up hill into "Sun Ridge by the Lake"
- Go left on NE 47th St
- Turn right on Voyage Avenue at the top of the hill
- Just before the intersection of Voyage Avenue and NE 49th you go into CN75

Update de KC7TS: I doubt if any big operations will ever be mounted from here. There is a parking lot (thieves paradise) with quite a few spaces, where you can leave your vehicle to be plundered while hiking out the trail. The trail is (was) in pretty good shape, but I haven't been there in many years. It is a little over 1 mile to get across the line, and you still have lots of trees once you're there.
