101.1 North Adams, MA.
Translator for WFCR Amherst.
In March 2014,
following some bad weather, the cell tower
collapsed, taking down the WUPE-FM tower with it.
W266AW ran off a temporary comet antenna while the main tower was rebuilt.
After the site was cleaned up, a new, single tower was
constructed to hold the equipment of both towers, and W266AW went to one of the new
emergency antennas installed for the primary stations.
Looking up the tower, transmitter building, and the emergency antennas on the left. As I understand it, one of
those two bays are now the 101.1 translator for WFCR.
A closer view of the emergency antennas installed for the collapse, one of which is now used by W266AW.
