So it’s been a while since I have updated this page! (Sorry!). While the updates here have been slow, I have been adding photos all over the website.
In late August, NECRAT took a return trip to Rochester, NY to see our close friend Scott Fybush of Fybush Media. First time in a few years, and for the first time, we got into sites in Rochester itself. See usually, when going there, we spend time in other cities. So I present to you a new Rochester update.
A return trip to the WRSB 1590 transmitter site, and the co-located original 105.5 FM antenna.
From there we visited two new translators, the 107.9 Mars Hill Network translator way north-east of the city. The next day we visited the new 107.5 translator for WXXI 1370
The a return trip to Pinnacle Hill. While many things hadn’t changed since our last visit, we did see a few new items. Like the post transition transmitter for WHAM-TV.
The “new” ERI antenna for WXXI-TV…
And transmitter for WXXI-TV.
And for WXXI (AM)
And WXXI-FM up on Pinnacle
Plus on Pinnacle, we got to see the new transmitter for the 94.7 translator and the original 106.7 transmitter as well.
The following day, we traveled to Ithaca, but stopped on Baker Hill to get some fresh, good weather pictures of the tower farm up there.
From there it was to Ithaca to see the WEOS site, which has since changed to 89.5 since our last move, and went non directional.
1470 AM site along with it’s 8 translators.
Plus the 1470 Am transmitter
From there a scenic ride around Cayuga Lake to visit the WITH and WSQG transmitter site and get inside the building.
From there, we headed through Ithaca traffic and raced to the WDKX studios, were we got a nice chance to see the rooftop FM of the highly rated, and highly acclaimed urban radio station.
Plus the translators of 97.5 and 105.5 also on the roof.
So on the last day, after replacing Scott’s doorbell, we took a trip out to see the inside of WHAM 1180, long overdue.
The day wound down with a quick stop in Syracuse to see the new WJPZ antenna upgrade on Day Hall (Mt. Olympus) at Syracuse University.
And some nice weather shots of the TV towers south of town.
