Television Antenna Tower

(Toledo, OH) You still come across a few of these metallic monstrosities, even in an age of widespread cable and digital satellite access. My next-door neighbor, who recently moved to an assisted living facility, was among the last people I know who actually used his tower to watch television.

If you happened to be outside when he was adjusting the antenna, you could hear the gears crank as the antenna motor turned the dipoles, though it was not enough to cause a migraine.

These days, there is a steady business for antenna tower removal in the area. It is interesting to have lived through the rise and fall of a particular technology.
