|The New RMRA Antennas|
|The Old RMRA 146.22/.82 MHz Antenna,|
side mounted on the old tower which will be razed upon completion of the candelabra. This view is looking west from the new candelabra. The antenna is a Phelps-Dodge (Now CelWave) SuperStation Master collinear array. It is held off the tower about 8 feet by two custom made stainless steel brackets at the top and bottom. The antenna is about 25 feet long.
Spectators can be seen in the lower center on the observation tower rising just above the forest canopy. The small tower on the right holds antennas for the Marathon County Sherrif's Department VHF and UHF systems.
