365 Days - Day 63

This is where I spend my time when assigned to the radar room. Still can't get a real good shot of the scope because of the low lighting, but I'm working on it. This scope covers the approach control area over Roanoke,VA and the center of the scope is the Roanoke Airport. The dashed lines are sector boundaries and the solid lines are MVA (minimum vectoring altitude) areas. The numbers inside of the solid areas are the MVA, or the lowest altitude we are allowed to assign (usually 1500' above the highest obstacle in that area)
