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.
