Cedar Hill 1981-1982

This is a very interesting picture taken looking up from the 1,100-foot platform at the KXTX Channel 39 tower at an FM broadcast antenna array. If you look closely, you will see Johnny Stigler, WA5ZRQ, sticking out from the tower. He is working at the base of the Jack Perkins, W5URH, "URH-244" 220 MHz antenna that was used at the 224.100 MHz repeater transmit antenna. This picture was taken the day the 220 MHz repeater (224.100 MHz) was installed. Image taken October, 1981.
