This is a collection images and movies of the 140 foot tower that had been toppled by a heavy gust of wind on the evening of 9-16-06. It had been used to support both the main and the standby ham radio repeater antennas for the K0JTA repeater on 147.360 Mhz. (A temporary antenna has been erected, but offers only limited range.)
