Geography This is the Sea Isle VORTAC located off Crest Haven Road in Cape May Court House, New Jersey, USA. The access road is paved and announced by the pictured sign: F.A.A. Vortex 3. Of course you will find the obligatory No Trespassing sign, however, it is just as easy to park in the adjacent Cape May County Veteran's Memorial Park and Cemetary and walk to the back to access close proximity to the facility.
Remarks On this particular spring day (April 3, 2006) not only did I (Warren) have a close encounter with the navaid, I also had the privilege of fortuitously meeting the navaid technician inside the building. Ed was extremely accommodating and was surely eager to describe the equipment.
In addition to the VOR and TACAN, the facility is host to a Washington Center frequency and serves as the remote control outlet (RCO) for the Millville FSS.
