Ice Storm Brings Down Illinois Tower
Joliet, IL - Dec 11, 2007 - A winter storm brought the 460ft WJCH tower down to a meager 200ft on Dec. 8. Around 2 p.m., the station's signal was cut off, silencing the 50kW station. The automated system should have notified management, but power and telephone lines were also cut. Because of some long-standing problems with the anchor system, the rest of the tower will be taken down.
The station has a potential temporary site and a transmitter. It is looking for a three or four bay antenna, tuned or with the ability to be tuned to 91.9 to use until it gets its tower back up.
If you have an antenna available, please contact Jeffrey Zimmer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
