November 1970: Waiting for the weather for tower construction

November 22, 1970

After three weeks of blizzards and winds, the weather has briefly cleared.

Volunteers John Pfeifer and Tom Busch are belted to the AM tower at the 95-foot level, and eight others on the ground hoist the microwave receive antenna, which the pair install.  Weather closes in again, and work can’t resume for two more days.
