I thought WBZ-TV had a smaller tower next to the big one, which would 
allow them to transmit, albeit with low range, if anything happened to 
the big tower.  When I read about it, I surmised that it was a response 
to the problems they had after the fall of the large Soldiers Field Road 
tower in 1953.
