Meet The Forward Observer on the Hill (FOTH)

(Sorry, no vest for you)

Image Prerequisites: Decent eyesight and ears that can detect aircraft approaching our aunch area.

The forward observer on the hill (also known as the Fool on the Hill :-)  ) is a position required by our waver to fly high-power rockets at Snow Ranch. You get an FRS radio and sit on top of the hill above the high-power pads and watch for aircraft within our airspace. Let the LCO know, using the radio about any aircraft within a mile of our launch pads.

The FOTH position is just about the best location for watching rockets fly. Be sure to take your camera with you as you are going to get some of the best shots of the day from the top of the hill.
