TOWER POWER — Mike Talbot, with Anchorage-based Alpine Towers, walks under a new 120-foot tower installed for KPU Telecommunications at Ketchikan’s landfill on the morning of April 10. The Temsco helicopter at left airlifted the top unit of the tower into place.
Cory Hill and Phillip Gunzinger of Alpine Towers are on the tower, installing the antenna. The new tower is the only one built for KPU's upcoming 4G-LTE advanced wireless voice and data services, which also involves modifications to seven existing antenna locations in the Ketchikan area.
