      hey, i've listened to that radio station before...good classic rock
    • Bill Clinton
      Yes 101.5 is a great classic rock station. This is not their only transmitter. They have at least 2 others.
    • JFB
      Wow, there's a crazy amount of stuff on that tower!
      (Click on it twice for the fully zoomed size.)

      Any idea what that vertical red/white bar is about half way down?
    • Bill Clinton
      I have no idea what that antenna is for. Someone else might be able to figure it out.
    • TelcomJunkie
      FAA compliance. The entire tower is painted red and white.
    • Yankees368
      I think he means there is a rather large antenna of some sort on the pole, that is also painted red and white. It is just under "UNICEL TDMA AMPS"
    • JFB
      Yes, it is large and attached to the side of the tower facing us.
    • TelcomJunkie
      Not knowing the azimuth it's either a TV or FM radio antenna. Though I'm leaning towards the TV station, particularly WVER.
