More pictures of the 403′ KXEO tower that fell the night of August 23rd, 2000.

on the east side of the building

The top section was pretty
badly mangled.

get a fix on the 1,203′ foot tower.

That’s Ron again, installing a temporary
microwave dish for KWWR, on what was
left of the old microwave tower.

toward the southeast.

A view from the studio building roof.

Had the tower fallen a few feet further to the south,
the studio building could have been destroyed.

The tower was cleared away by the weekend.
Here’s a view from the studio building to the northwest.

And finally a view from where the tower
had fallen, looking toward the building.
