2/24/2020 Update:

The tower crew did not work today due to rainy, windy weather. It's not looking good for the rest of the week, due to more rain and falling temperatures. The heavy equipment has been secured and the area around the tower is a muddy mess morning. [Click Here for Photos] Aside from the weather delays, things are working out.

In the past week the crew was able to remove most the old wave guide and install about a third of the replacement.
