Our thanks to Don Guemmer, an engineer at WFAA-TV, for giving us the grand tour of his transmitter plant. This older Harris transmitter is for analog channel 8. (I believe, from looking at it, that it's actually two transmitters connected together through a combiner to produce the required output power. I remember Don saying something of the sort.) The ductwork hanging over the transmitter is part of the cooling system. (This was a well-cooled transmitter room.)
