Radio Antenna Tower Demolition Today (fwd)

Not SIG/BBS related, but... its going to be a sad sight...

The final demolition of the Radio Antenna Towers [in Annapolis Md] is
planned for approximately 1530 EST today, Thursday, 9 Dec 99....
... a superb view of the simultaneous drop of one 1200' tower
and six 600' towers.  The 300' tower at the end of the golf course
driving range will drop moments before the seven taller towers. 
Please be prepared for a very loud boom.

They will initiate over 150 simultaneous charges...!  CNN should cover it.
(This is outside my window... about a mile...)


These were the VLF arrays for comms with Nuclear
Subs.  Resonant frequency was 38 KHz... and other VLF...
