Radio to be on Denver DTV Tower

Radio to be on Denver DTV Tower

A county commission in Denver has endorsed construction plans for noncomm KRMA-TV’s proposed 135-foot tower, which will include both analog and digital TV antennas. The endorsement gives other local broadcasters hope their DTV proposals will be approved.
Radio stations will co-locate on the tower, to be built at the antenna farm on Mt. Morrison. The structure would consist of five vertical towers tied together like a fence, said Rocky Mountain PBS President and GM James Morgese. The project would replace two smaller structures and house two KRMA antennas, public radio stations KUVO(FM) and KVOD(FM), several UHF TV stations and other tenants.
“I don’t know of anything like this in the country,” said Morgese, who said the project could be complete and the antennas broadcasting in 18 months if all goes well.
The county expects to finalize the decision to rezone the site by March 11.
