I've driven past WJW on my way to work every day since 1996 and lived in it's shadow (.8 of a mile) since 2005. I never saw a self-supporting tower, the old tower IIRC was also guyed. If they had...

Then stay away from the intersection mentioned above. I can't believe that WJW was allowed to stay on that property and even replace the tower with a newer one a few years ago. Every other tower...

All I know is what I see. The normally red colored antenna at the top of WJW was white (as was the top section of the tower which is also "striped" with alternating red and white). The other...

There is no "35.1", 35 is still analog. When it does go digital it will be 16.1 IIRC.

I was there when that "small artifact" was brand new. It was the STL used for WRDZ. We went AM Stereo thanks to that baby. I don't know if 1100 used that short tower as a backup. In 1989 the main...

Yagi's are highly directional, they can be wide band or narrow band (i.e. cut to specific channel). There are Yagi's for nearly every band VHF, UHF, even HF for ham bands. What distinguishes a Yagi...

I agree, that looks like multipath. In the early days of ATSC broadcasting I had a Dish 921 which included an OTA tuner. That 99 watt signal that WVIZ had when they were still on Brookpark Rd. would...
