West Peak must truly have one of the most motley collections of FM antennas of any major antenna farm. It could not have been built so today; environmental and cost considerations would likely have forced the stations into a shared master antenna system. But here, every station has its own, separate antenna, and usually a separate backup antenna as well. After an hour or so of looking around, the clouds have cleared enough to get a better view of the WKSS/WPHH tower, and this time we can see the WPHH/WKSS backup tower as well. (The WKSS backup antenna is down on the main structure of the tower, out of frame.)
It's time for Rick to get back to work, and for us to head on up to Farmington to meet John Ramsey.
