WSEE-TV
Virtual 35.1
Post Repack 21
(Pre Repack 16)
Erie, PA



Look familiar?  It's the old WSEE-TV tower. Due to some changes in tower leases, WICU-TV and WSEE-TV
moved from their old tower here, as WSEE-TV repacked. The move gave them a chance to build a new top shelf
broadcast facility.  Also now on this tower is 106.3 which moved from much farther south onto this tower.


Looking at the top infastructure. The UHF WSEE-TV antenna on top, WICU-TV below it (hard to see here), a side mount
UHF, 106.3's panel, the 105.9 translator, and much farther down is the 98.7 translator (right)
 

A closer look at the top half.


The stacked antenna closer.


A better view. You can see the UHF 21 on top of the VHF 12 here.


Here's a closeup shot of the post repack antenna.


This is an aux side mount antenna for WSEE-TV


Another view of it.


Thanks to Scott Fybush for remembering to get a shot of the exterior of the building when I forgot! Newly painted and cleaned up nice!


The cool transmitter facility. WSEE-TV on the far left, WICU to the right of the control rack. The 105.9 translator middle of the rack to the left of the Nautel, and 106.3 is
the Nautel.

The first night in Erie, we were hit with a massive downpour at the WICU/WSEE site. I took this unique picture of the tower.


Two days later, the sky was perfect.
