Channel 13 Access analog signal antenna array - Calgary [Two antennas mounted on each of the 3 sides of the mast - the lowest EHAAT (height) of all the TV/FM broadcast antenna arrays on this mast. This doesn't help with reception in some parts of the city!]

Yep - every analog TV broadcaster here in Calgary seems to have a Larcan and this is another shot the CBC's 30Kw Channel 9 unit.

Here's the KTXA/KTVT antenna being mounted on the Richland South candelabra in Cedar Hill, Texas (the Dallas-Ft. Worth antenna farm). It was supposed to light up on 14 JAN 2011 but was delayed for a few days due to sleet and ice.
This video was taken last month when the old KDAF analog antenna was removed to make way for the wideband RF-19/RF-29 Dielectric TUM30-O4-14 antenna. The other two top-mounted antennas are KDAF (RF-32) and KSTR (RF-48).

Chile has started test transmissions of ISDB-T. 1-seg is rapidly gaining popularity among mobile users.
More pictures of Santiago and Valparaiso transmitters in my profile.

This is the main transmitter site for radio, television, mobile telephony and other antennas for the city of Salta in northern Argentina. What a forest of antennas!

Here is the tower on Bruce Peninsula north of Lion's Head for CKCO retransmission of the Kitchener CTV. Interesting way of shortening the IFL for the microwave hop. Is this common?
