OK, I am confused.  What is on the FM 128 Tower?

Here it is on Google maps Satellite photo:,+Newton,+MA&hl=en&ll=42.30761


I can't explain why it looks bent...

The metrodesk at the globe reports "he was installing a safety
ladder and performing routine maintenance".

Interesting that the article identifies the tower as the "old WHDH-TV
I guess "old" must be referring to WHDH-TV, not to the tower.
