Broadcast Towers Hurl Icy Destruction from the Sky

Our shadowy wind power opponents tried dashing their Quixotic lances into the expansion of renewable energy in South Dakota with House Bill 1226, a failed measure that would have tripled how far back wind turbines must be placed from neighbors’ property, even though they could produce no firm evidence of harm from wind turbines.

Perhaps these tower-taker-downers will turn their terror toward broadcast towers, which have nailed a couple cars this icy week:

At the 2,000 foot tower near Rowena, our Midwest Communications Radio Q957 Toyota Tundra pickup got nailed in the front window by a falling chunk of ice.

Back at the studio in downtown Sioux Falls, a car in the City parking lot just to the east of our 100-foot microwave tower got nailed in the back window [Todd Epp, “At Half Time: Ice Shards Falling Off Broadcast Towers 2, Vehicles 0,” KELO Radio, 2019.04.12].

Also zero: reports this week of wind turbines throwing ice in South Dakota and damaging vehicles, buildings, or people.

Of course, a couple punishing chunks of ice still don’t do as much damage to the Republic as the signals that come beaming out KELO’s towers every day after 11 a.m.
