Several club members took a tour of the 2,029 ft KOVR transmitter tower located in Walnut Gove, California.  The tour was hosted by Bob, W1RH.  It is the tallest stucture in California and provides the OTA TV signal for KOVR Channel 13 in the Sacramento / Stockton area.  Every ham dreams about having a tower like this!
