Permanent replacement of a Nebraska broadcast tower that fell after a fatal plane crash last month could take six to nine months, according to The DenverChannel.com.
Three people - a Colorado woman, her fiancee and his child - were killed when their small airplane crashed into the tower owned by Nebraska Educational Radio and Television.
The Web site quoted NET Chief Technology Officer Michael Beach saying a temporary tower could be in place by Christmas if weather and hardware deliveries allow. "That could restore service to some of the more than 30,000 homes NET estimated to be without either its radio or television programming since the accident," it quoted him saying. Some homes can still receive the programming via cable and satellite services.
