Details about Clear Channel's Sandridge Tower project in Dayton, Ohio, are emerging.
ERI has been chosen to supply antennas, combiner, tower and erection services. The project is scheduled to be operational by late summer.
Clear Channel Communications Director of Engineering for Dayton Jeff Bennett said the installation will be challenging.
"The Sandridge Tower is a large structure which must be placed on a small parcel of land. It will be within 14 feet of an existing 540-foot tower, alongside a warehouse and an industrial office-building complex. The existing 540-foot tower will remain in use until the new tower/antennas are completed."
The project will permit four stations to collocate, consolidating from other locations. An ERI Cogwheel-style antenna will allow Clear Channel Class B FM stations WMMX, WTUE and WLQT to share a facility. A separate ERI 1084DA panel antenna on the tower will be an upgrade for WXEG.
