Digital Tower Erection

1 December, 2001 (17:00) | DTV, HDTV, Projects

Because there was simply no room on the existing tower to place a DTV antenna that would be even marginally effective, I was successful in convincing the company of the need to build the tower and locate the new antenna on it.

Since this was a transmitter site that has a very high HAAT, a relatively short 250’ self-supported tower would serve our needs well for the antenna and a great deal more in the future.
