Back on the air with a long wire running I-heart "Foggy Mountain" classic country.

Station's tower taken down almost exactly one year ago when landlord (Walker Caterpillar) wanted the land to store more bulldozers (rent was kind of high, too).
The long wire is at the WNUS tower site in Belpre, --the original STL path was up to this tower then back down to Parkersburg on a 2nd hop because of terrain obstacles between studio and the old tower. So they didn't need to re-engineer the STL for this temporary operation.

Not clear where it goes from here.

Typical long wire--sketchy coverage, reduced bandwidth. But, it is back up on-air.
