This original tower was erected in 1954 by KSBW TV, and used until 1987 when they built a new tower at Mt. Madonna in Santa Cruz County. Now it is used by so many clients, it appears to be seriously overloaded.
Back in 1976, I worked for KSBW-TV as a transmitter operator. 4 days/nights on, three days/nights off. What a job. It could get pretty lonely up there, but then again, the views and the solitude were also something to be treasured.
