Today’s featured photo of the day! The feature is: Radio

For the month of November, I will be featuring radio transmitters and antennae. Here is today’s featured photo, to commemorate with the industry of radio’s 100th anniversary of invention.. Here is a photo of the then transmitter and antenna of the station WBYG-FM, Kankakee, Illinois whereby the antenna is still located although states “For Sale” and on Google Maps states that it is WBUS-FM at 8850 W. County Line Rd.., Peotone, Illinois, off of Interstate 57. Date – March 1981.

  1. Love radio, love the photos. I used to live very close to the WCBS-AM transmitter. I had a little transistor radio. Once the batteries were 99% dead and I could STILL pick up WCBS!
