Tower Construction Project

Thanks to the generous, tireless and determined efforts of the CARESS members along with members from other amateur radio clubs, we have made an unbelievable achievement possible – the raising of three 80 foot self-standing amateur radio antenna towers.

The activities started in the summer of 2014 and we worked long hard hours in the rain, heat, cold; day or night.
