It was a dramatic scene over the weekend as a new transmission antenna was installed for KYW CBS3 and WPSG CW-Philly
It took about a dozen workers and some high-flying maintenance to complete the antenna installation in the Roxborough area on Saturday. CBS-3 strapped a go-pro on one worker to record the high-flying installation as a two-piece antenna was bolted to the 1,350-foot TV transmission tower.
After the nerve-wracking work was complated, the tower is now 200 feet taller than Philly’s highest skyscraper. If all goes to plan, our engineers say the signal could be up and running as early as Thursday.
