The View From 3400 Feet
Over the last few weeks, VPR engineers have been working on Mount Ascutney, attempting to diagnose a problem with our WVPR 89.5 signal. Yesterday, climbers from Prescott Tower of Rutland were on the tower inspecting VPR's antenna. They found no visible problems with the antenna, so the diagnostic work will continue until the problem is found and fixed.
In the meantime - enjoy the view! Mount Ascutney is 3143 feet high. The tower is more than 400 feet - the climber was at 330 feet up.
Here is another shot looking straight down the tower. And to think tower climbers love their work!
