PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Tower work started in July and the progress of the new antenna is moving right along.
The full power antenna has been installed, and the tower crew is installing 2,000 feet of an 8-inch copper pipe called a “feedline” to the antenna.
This work is slow and ongoing.
There have been minor delays, which has pushed back our completion date to mid-to-late-September for testing and completion.
