Talked with one of my good friends in Ottumwa recently, and he said the former OATS (Ottumwa Area Translator System) tower was cut down. The OATS tower used to sit on Monkey Mountain, but was moved in recent years to Copperhead Rd. across from Forest Lake Baptist Camp.

It appeared the 50 year old OATS tower was going to be reborn as Christian radio KQLF was going to move to it and upgrade, but the absentee landowner that bought the OATS site wanted the tower gone. Too much liability if the tower lights failed, so down it went. Apparently KQLF didn't make a binding agreement in time to take over liability for the tower. ASR number for the tower has been deleted. Southern rock, pop and country favorites play here!
