Pioneer Television hits a brand new high point


APPLETON -- Scaling a 1,200-foot tower to dismount and carefully return to earth a 74-foot-long antenna weighing 18,000 pounds -- or more than four SUVs -- is challenge enough.

But the really tough job was doing it all in reverse and that is now done: Channel 10 Pioneer Public Television in Appleton has replaced its 26-year-old analog antenna with a new digital antenna.
