Is the old tower site staying for other uses or being dismantled? I thought it had some 2-way gear on it for county agencies and such.

The site will be dismantled. No other equipment was on the tower. The transmitter is slated to go to WZZZ for spare parts or back up transmitter.

If it was the same transmitter from the WZIO days, my bet's on spare parts. Most of the equipment at that station was halfway to the junk bin. Not surprised the site's being dismantled, because it's so far out in the boonies that there would probably be few prospective renters. The location was another problem when that was a local station -- the telco line STL always had hum and buzz in it, but they were probably stuck because any microwave STL from Wheelersburg would have been 2 hops to get out to that tower. No need for STL on a K-Love drone station.

Would hated to have to go out there to clean the wasps out of the K-Love dish though!
