Pu`u Alala, Hawai`i

Here are some views from January of 2006 from the Pu`u Alala tower site
on the east side of the Big Island, just north of Hilo.

Pu`u Alala (Crow Hill) is the antenna site for a number of FM and TV stations in the Hilo market.

          The Pu`u Alala tower site is around 760 feet above sea level, and located on the east side of the Big Island of Hawai`i. The main self-supporting tower supports 3 FM stations combined into one master antenna. A second guyed tower supports one FM and a UHF TV antenna.
