BARRA visited the transmitter site of WNED-AM 970 and WHLD-AM 1270 in Hamburg, NY on August 4, 2003.  Here's a few views of what we saw that night.

WNED-AM's main transmitter, a late-70s vintage Harris. The tower phasing equipment for WNED-AM.
WHLD-AM's transmitter, a Harris Gates Five. WHLD's tower phasing equipment.

Lights are on, time to go home.

Our thanks to the WNED-AM engineering staff for a GREAT tour!
