LBA TuniPole® Braves Hurricanes and Floods for 35 Years!
The LBA TuniPole® folded unipole installed at WOOW in Greenville, North Carolina celebrates its 35th birthday! And what a 35 years it has been…
A dozen hurricanes, winter ice storms, and even a flood a few years ago that covered the whole transmitter building. Yet, the LBA TUP3-200 keeps WOOW radiating a clear, crisp 1000 watt signal from its quarter wave 183 foot tower.
WOOW owner Jim Rouse has nothing but praise for his TuniPole®. “The antenna system just keeps putting out a good clear signal, day after day, to the Greenville area. The TuniPole® is very stable, and we haven’t had any problems with it in all the years I have had the station,” says Jim.
Because the folded unipole permits the tower base to be grounded, a translator for WTEB-FM, a local public broadcaster, can also share the tower without requiring an isocoupler. Expanding Public Radio East coverage, and radiating a quality AM signal – now, that’s two for the money!
