So I ended up going to the summit of Mount Washington despite the uncertain weather. I took about forty photos, but this is the only one not to be shrouded in clouds. Seen here are the WHOM (94.9C Mount Washington) auxiliary (left) and main (right) antennas. You may note in the FCC files that the backup antenna is actually higher than the main antenna, a rather unusual situation; the backup antenna, however, has much lower antenna gain and does not have grandfathered 50 kW ERP of the main antenna. (The class-C maximum at this height above average terrain is about 25 kW.)
