Pine Mtn is a long knife-edge ridge with radio towers at either end. Great operating positions can be found halfway between the towers, with open horizon through the trees in almost all directions. This worked great for me on meteor scatter and a long 6m opening in the 2018 June VHF Contest. I even worked Germany from here.
