The CN91-DN01 grid line crosses CA Hwy 299 about 9.3 miles east of Cedarville CA, where there's a wide spot that lets you park well away from the highway. This is a wide-open plain a good distance from the mountains on both sides.

The grid line is a few hundred yards west of the border between California and Nevada, since the state border is not exactly on longitude 120.0. The road becomes unpaved as it enters Nevada.

Driving directions: From Cedarville, drive east on CA-299 about 9.3 miles, crossing over Middle Alkali Lake until you reach the state line.

Petr AG6EE: Don't go here. The GSM tower is hanging low sending all its RF into your antenna.

Al W7KHD: Fox Mtn is SE of Duck Lake Valley, NV. Has a good 360 take off, maybe because of the lack of any other mountains that are taller or close. There are communications towers up there, which causes problems on the air.

Driving directions: Old Camp Canyon Rd is normally in pretty good shape.

Restrictions: The wind blows hard up there.
