Philadelphia tower question

WIP also has two towers but they are much further apart relative to 
their height than are KYW's towers. For KYW, D/H ~ 0.9. For WIP, D/H ~ 
3 (where D = distance between towers and H = tower height). For KYW, H 
= 464'; for WIP, H = 273'. WTMR (800 Camden NJ--part of the Philly 
market) has two towers as well. but they are of unequal height and are 
extremely closely spaced (45 degrees).

Subject: Philadelphia tower question

I know this is a Boston board but I know there are many Philly people 
who also read it. Tonight I saw an old Rosalyn Russell movie on TCM 
“Where angels go trouble follows” It was filmed in the Philadelphia 
area. As they leave on a cross country bus trip I saw an I-76 sign in 
an area that was
farmland with a tall two tower directional array with medium spacing 
between them. The towers looked to be of hefty width possibly in the 
Norristown area could this be the KYW array? The movie was filmed 
around 1967 so I suspect what was farmland then is now Philadelphia 
suburban sprawl.
