Fybush Media’s 2010 Tower Site Calendar is hot off the presses, the ninth year the unique 12-month wall calendar has been on sale.
The calendar, which features a monthly photo of a well-known broadcast transmitter site, is photographed and written by Scott Fybush, the creator of “Tower Site of the Week” and “North East Radio Watch”.
The full-color monthly calendar has become a tradition for many radio engineers and a curiosity for those who think all radio towers look alike.
“The calendar has become a tradition over the years,” says Fybush. “For many people, they are a very popular holiday gift.”
Once again, each month of the calendar features an 8″x11″ color photograph of a broadcast transmitter site taken by Fybush during his travels around the U.S., Canada, Mexico and beyond. The sites pictured on the 2010 calendar include many stunning mountain photos:
- Vermont’s tallest peak, Mount Mansfield
- One of the tallest self-supporting towers in the country, the former home to WTBS in Atlanta
- The historic Art Deco transmitter site of Washingto, D.C.’s WTOP
- WBT in North Carolina, one of the oldest transmitter sites still in use
- A unique horizontal antenna perched on the Odd Fellows’ Hall south of downtown Los Angeles
- KSTP, overlooking Highway 61 in St. Paul, Minnesota
- New York City’s newest AM site, located in Secaucus, New Jersey
- WCLO, the hometown radio station of Janesville, Wisconsin
- XEWW, south of Rosarito Beach in Mexico
- Deer Point, a major transmitter site rising 4,200 feet above Boise, Idaho
- The broadcast site of Pittsburgh’s legendary KDKA
- A nearly 70-year-old site in Phoenix, now surrounded by a shopping center parking lot
- A sunset photo showcasing WGHP-TV in High Point, North Carolina
In addition to tower photos, the calendar’s monthly pages include significant dates in radio and television history, as well as civil and religious holidays and the start of each season.
The 2010 calendars cost $18 each, postpaid ($19.44 including sales tax for New York State residents), and can be purchased by check (payable to “Scott Fybush”) or money order to 92 Bonnie Brae Avenue, Rochester NY 14618. Orders can also be placed with major credit cards at www.fybush.com.
“I’ve traveled all over the country to see radio stations, often after an engineer invited me,” says Fybush, who also edits The Radio Journal and the radio directory site 100000watts.com and anchors newscasts for NPR member station WXXI in Rochester, NY.
