Re: WLLZ Monroe-Detroit

No mention is made in the Pop Comm article of what  TV/FM stations use
the tower.  It  is known locally as the "Motower" (Motown Tower).  It
does mention that the old WWJ AM site was nearby, and because of that
the whole tower had a detuning skirt installed on it to eleminate
interference to that station (WWJ) The article further adds that WLLZ
installed some ground radials and another skirt parallel to the detuning
skirt and uses this to load the tower to their frequency.

You can see the whole item in the June 2002 issue on page 29. But,
actually, you had much more accurate info about the tower in your
postings here.
