Not Your Usual Microwave Installation

Have you ever had an unusual experience at a microwave radio site?

Here’s one we would like to share with you. Aviat Networks Account Manager Mark Davis recently experienced an ascent of Mt. Pisgah in North Carolina (mid-Atlantic coast USA) in a cable car—climbing 3,600 feet in 11 minutes. The cable car is purpose-built to carry engineers to the TV broadcast tower on top of Mt. Pisgah, in this intance it transported 6-ft antennas and Aviat Networks radio gear. The microwave radio installation will connect U.S. National Park Service offices along the entire Blue Ridge Parkway.

Check out the video:


We are sure there are many more interesting examples of radio installations out there. Post comments below or email us your story or images. We want to hear from you!
