The last "flat-top" wire antenna in use in the United States. A classic Art Deco transmitter site. A rare view of the towers atop the Hancock Center.
These are among facilities featured in the 2005 edition of Scott Fybush's Tower Site Calendar.
Fybush, a Radio World contributor and creator of the online Tower Site of the Week, is in his fourth year of producing the calendar, which started as a labor of love and incorporates photos from his travels around the country.

KYPA, Los Angeles, a "flat-top" wire antenna dating to 1924.
