Antenna Upgrade at WBNG Television Tower
Work is being done at the WBNG Television transmitter tower site off Ingraham Hill Road in the Town of Binghamton. Tower crews along with a helicopter were at work today (Thursday) removing the upper portion of the analog antenna and upgrading to a new digital antenna.
The overall height is over 900 feet...that's more than the length of three football fields combined ! This is obviously no easy task. If you have wondered how difficult and precise this must be take a look at the accompanying video and photos.
