    someone should write the sutrolocation iphone app… snap a pic of the tower, a little trigonometry and bam.

      Ha, I have totally been thinking about such an app for a while now (not that I have programming skillz).

      But the relative angles would be easy to figure out, even if one antenna obscures the other (like you see near 30th) — you just need to look at the angle of backup HD antenna (down low in the front).

      I still get a little confused when looking at Sutro from the Richmond/Sunset though. It’s like suddenly finding yourself in an alternate universe where things are almost but not quite the same.

    for those indeterminate regions, the app would indicate “thar be dragons (and sand)”
