Northern Berkshire Update

Ah Berkshire County, MA. My favorite place anywhere. Having grown up there, the place holds a special place in my heart.

We documented here the 2014 North Adams tower collapses. Our friend Paul Thurst did an incredible job documenting it from first disaster to final construction on his excellent website.

I finally traveled up to “Florida Mountain” to picture document the new, final construction of the new 98.9/100.1 tower, and the new location of the 101.1 Translator.

On the way down the hill, we stopped in North Adams to grab a quick shot of the new LPFM, WMNB-LP.

We also got one incredible picture of Mt. Greylock,
Which is , of course, home to the WCDC/WAMC-FM/W38DL tower.

And finally a stop in Pittsfield, to grab a quick picture of 103.3 W277CJ, the new translator for WUPE 1110, mounted on top of the vacant hotel in downtown Pittsfield.
