Too little of the tower appears in the photo to be absolutely certain
that it's one of the WEZE towers, but it almost certainly is one of
them. The distance between those towers is a little more than twice
their height. The distance between the much shorter WXKS towers is
less than their height--probably noticeably less than their height.
