  1. Well, there’s an All American Park at Buffalo at Oakey, and just to its east there is a tower, so I’d say the photo was taken from S Tioga Rd looking northward at the cross street Del Rey Ave.

    An FCC tower search on 36-9-22 N, 115-15-35 W turns up
    as the closest, a 1974 construction of 99 meters above ground owned by Burken Broadcasting, LLC.
    That company owns two stations in Las Vegas, but KRLV-AM Talk Radio 1340 is shown by
    to have its transmitter there.

  2. Tom,

    You are on a roll!

    Yep, the other “all American” property is the office of Social Security Administration directly to the west of this tower location.

    I’d say you’ve won the mugs — even though you’ve still got two more of those matches to make (above)

    Excellent work!

    …Oops I stand corrected!
