STL Tower repairs

The guys have been replacing the guy wires on the STL tower at the transmitter site. It turns out that the guy wires were in worse shape than we thought, so we are thankful that we did this in time, and that we had the parts on hand to do the job.

The STL antennas themselves are also totally corroded away where they attach to the tower and need to be replaced. Fortunately we have a spare set of antennas, which we can install. We'll need to get another pair of antennas for the backup STL channel. There is also a hole in one of the tower legs that will need patching.

I'm bugging Rich West for pictures, which I will post as soon as they are available.
