How many VOR beacons are there in the US Gus?

Ive googled, and found out how they work, what freqs and all that jazz, but I am not having luck finding a map of the beacon locations.

Wishing for all the best on our friends in Dallas. Looks very bad right now with large and extremely dangerous tornadoes on the ground.

Growing up in Bentonville, I was always tormented by smell of the Tyson Plant on 8th St. This was a place where they cooked breaded chicken. I can smell it now....

Now the live-kill Cargill plant, w/ the run away chickens or turkeys. That was another matter...

FYI...

The GS Giant's Adventure Summit
July 15-21, 2012 in conjunction with the BMW MOA International Rally.
Oark, Arkansas and Sedalia, Missouri and some of the best twisty roads around, pavement optional. The GS Giants are some great folks, and their volunteerism plays a huge part in making Adventure Summits possible.
Meet up with everyone in Oark, AR for the GS Giant Gypsy Tour and enjoy far more than $100 worth of great camping, food, fun and fellowship. Head north to Sedalia, MO for the BMW MOA Rally in Sedalia and ride a custom adventure track, which will challenge all your off-road skills. The rally is only $40 more, and the MOA guarantees a great value. Register to ride here.

Yeah, smell distance is a major consideration. Train runs very close to that housing area too.

Plenty of small ~1000 sqft houses with garages over near my part for sale and rent, cheap. No chicken smell. No trains.
