Thanks to something called remote site monitoring everyone with broadcast tower fetish can eavesdrop as these things are being built. During the day you can watch as work is being done on WSVN and WPLG’s new broadcast tower. There are also a heap of time lapse AVI videos showing the construction process starting from day one as the tower is erected piece by piece and later antennas are attached etc.
The new tower will be 1042.3′ tall and will be finished sometime in June. The stations are sharing tower costs which is estimated to be around $7 million dollars
In addition to WSVN and WPLG, radio station WLYF 101.5FM will also be on the tower.
