This dizzying view shows a two-bay ERI 1180 Series master FM antenna in Detroit. This antenna is the primary for Cumulus station WDVD, a 20 kW station on 96.3 MHz, owned by Cumulus, and WYCD, a 17.5 kW station on 99.5 MHz, owned by Audacy, the former Entercom.

The antenna and combiner also provide auxiliary facilities for Cumulus station WDRQ.

“This was taken by the ERI crew that installed the antenna and transmission line run,” ERI’s Bill Harland tells Radio World after we saw it being shared on social media.

“The system included the antenna, a run of 4-1/16-inch MACXLine and an FM channel combiner. The photo was taken at the completion of the antenna installation in 2019.”

The antenna is at 240 meters or 787 feet HAAT, according to the handy site
