The KSCY antenna will be mounted on this 180 foot self-supporting tower
at the High Flat Electronic Site, west of Bozeman.
The building and tower were erected by Neil Ramhorst, owner of
Mountain Communications & Paging, in partnership with
Idaho Tower Company,
in February, 2004.
Our first couple of days at the site were spent removing empty antenna frames
from the 100-foot level to make way for the KSCY antenna.
By February 21, we had put the Harris ZX3500 transmitter and Harris Digit
exciter in the rack. We also had assembled the Shively 6813 antenna bays.
On the right is the Shively 3-section bandpass filter.
By end of the day on February 23, the four-bay, half-wave-spaced
antenna was in place on the tower.
We installed the 1-5/8 inch Andrew HeliaxTM on February 26.
On Thursday afternoon, February 28, 2008, we finished installing the 1-5/8 inch
rigid coaxial line inside the transmitter building. We were ready to test
The Harris transmitter producing a full 3,500 Watts into the antenna,
with a reflected power of about 2 Watts.
The fully-equipped rack from top: Aztec-Audemat RDS generator, Moseley LanLink,
Moseley StarLink, Omnia audio processor, Linksys Ethernet switch,
JVC CD player, Harris Digit exciter, and Harris ZX3500 amplifier.
