Re: Microwave towers
- Actually, neither Western or T was involved? by the time I started
building them 70-72 Most of the design was farmed out to the White
Plains Russians. I can only assume that each monolith was designed
specifically pursuant to planned long haul traffic routes.
Prior to 1975, I never saw an "E" in the fleet, or on an AT&T
site? Sometime in 1979-80??? we were commissioned to fabricate and
build 3 of them. I can't remember the designer though??
About that time, many were jumpin ship to WorldCom.
