2019-04-23 WCGQ Damaged Transmission Line Section – To Be Replaced Soon

During a visit to the WCGQ transmitter site to drop-off/warehouse some parts, we took a few moments to further size-up what we’ll need to do to replace a section of the rigid transmission line which was damaged by a piece of hardware which was either dropped or fell from the tower at some point, puncturing the outer copper shield portion of the line.
