Of course WPLM's studio AND transmitter is right under their array. I
forget how tall the 4 towers are. Help me out here- didn''t a light
plane crash into a tower there once- or into some guys? I cannot pin
down when, but very early 60's seems about right. I don't recall if
they lost a tower or not.
Being "high atop Marconi Hill" would not be a pleasant spot to be on
duty in the middle of a good hurricane!
BTW, does anyone know when WPLM was first licensed?
