THAT THE DISH'S DIDN'T MOVE BUT THE WOODEN TOWER WHICH WERE SANDBAG AND GUYED MOVED...GLAD WE DIDN'T KNOW IT AT THE TIME...JAMES

WE HAD A DRAFTSMAN WORKING IN OUR COMPANY AND HE HAD BEEN AT THAT BASE A FEW YEARS AFTER I LEFT AND SAID THAT IT FELL DOWN THRU THE ROOF OF THE XMTR SHACK,,,,WE NEVER HAD A TOWER SO THAT PUT IT UP ON HILL 180 WITH 4 75' POLES WITH A PLATFORM....THE PLATFORM ROTTED OUT AND DOWN IT CAME...WHAT ELSE IS KNEW FOR THE AIR FORCE....HOPE U GOT ALL THE OTHER PIC'S OK.....JAMES
