WSMI-FM Antenna DamageThu, 15 Feb 2007 20:47:02 CST
These blocks are part of our 11 bay FM antenna. You may be able to see that the Teflon insulators are burned in all three blocks and that the center conductor of block 7 is burned.
Many parts are being replaced to restore our antenna to its original capabilities.
The WSMI-FM antenna is about 98 feet long and hangs on our 50 story tall tower.
Our transmission line and antenna were damaged in the second ice storm of this winter.
Trouble shooting and repair have been slow due to the weather. The transmission line has been repaired. The antenna rebuild is underway. Weather will play a large role in the plan to hang the antenna back on our tower.
