Pre-Summer 2015 Update

So from time to time, I realize there are a number of local or fairly local sites I need to update for various reasons. I try to combine them into a single update, to make for a more pleasurable viewing experience. So here is my “Pre-Summer 2015″ update.
(As always, the full sets for each station are in the gallery)

Starting with May, when our good friend Steve Callahan was gracious enough to give a “cooks tour” of his soon to completed upgraded site at WVBF 1530 in Taunton. The new two tower array is on the site of the old WPEP, off of County St in Taunton.

Three days later, we made a trek up to one of our favorite sites,
Asnebumskit Hill in Paxton to see the new WAAF Aux antenna.

And that same day, we also got pictures of the newest LPFM in Springfield, WZCS 102.5

In June, All of the updates came from one trip. We took pictures of the new WWBB aux antenna at the WHJY site.

WPEP – WVBF

You probably know about WPEP in the little city of Taunton, MA., and it’s disappearance from the radio waves in 2007. Well in all that time, the little tower on County St., near Route 24 has remained standing.  Recently, our good friend Steve Callahan came up with a plan to not only resurrect the tower, but add a second tower for his 1530 WVBF. I had heard from my friend Jeff Lehmann that the tower has been already put up. So today, on a spur of the moment trip for non broadcast purposes, I stopped by the site to grab two quick shots with my camera-phone.
