SylverWinged and I took on some serious challenges tonight, including regular geocaches, a mystery streak cache, and a 5-stage multi-cache. Oh, and some benchmarks for good measure. Here we are at the Phoenix Public Service Microwave Mast.

No problem

Found in good shape.
Last visit was from below and to the west. Today (10/1/11), I visited the summit of Shaw Butte and got an up-close photo of the microwave tower, which is in very good shape.

I found a microwave mast at the coordinates, however I saw no markings to ensure it is the same mast when this was first observed in 1962.

Yup, still there and in good shape!
