Maine Tower Sites

Over the years, has featured seven Maine locations as Tower Sites of the Week (see also Mount Washington, N.H.: A Look Back). I especially like the 1998 tour of Aroostook County towers and studios.
When we visited, the channel 8 signal still came from the tower out back; it put a fine signal up to Madawaska, where we were staying (though WAGM also has a translator, W11AA, up there.)

And look carefully to the left of the call letters on the building: that sign reads "CBS/NBC/ABC." When you're the only station in town, you can pick and choose, and WAGM used to do just that. More recently, WAGM has been primarily a CBS affiliate, with today's schedule showing a few NBC daytime soaps, Saturday Night Live, some stray UPN programming and no more ABC. [Link]
