New Tower at ‘Jump Off Joe’

New Tower at 'Jump Off Joe'

A new tower is available for space rentals in the Tri-Cities, Wash., area.
Broadcast Towers, the owner and landlord, said it has completed the 400-foot, solid-steel Pirod tower on private property about a half-mile south of Jump Off Joe Butte in Benton County. The company’s Richard Carstens told RW Online the $185,000 project was built on spec and can accommodate two eight-bay FM antennas along with DTV and other services.
“It is alternatingly exciting and scary to know we have done this on the theory of ‘Build it and they will come,” Carstens said.
The company says the tower will serve clients who need excellent sight lines north, west and east of Tri-Cities, south to Oregon. A fenced compound and 300 KV power are on site.
Whom might this tower serve? Carstens replied: “Tri-Cities, Walla Walla, Yakima Valley, north to Ritzville. Class C stations have to protect as far east as Clarkston/Lewiston FM stations. South into the Pendleton and Hermiston Oregon region.”
Valmont Industries erected the tower. Carstens also worked with Andrew Corp. He was not able immediately to tell us the history of the name Jump Off Joe Butte.
