Re: [BVARC] Stolen 200 ft tower

2024-02-16 Thread John Denison via BVARC
I was just watching a YouTube video where a couple of guys went out to 
the site, and found that it had looked abandoned. They said because of 
the condition of the site, building, fence, and guy wires, the tower 
could not have been taken so recently.

They are only hard to take apart if you want to reuse it.   Cordless grinder

Apparently they did it for the potential of copper in the hardline.. or maybe 
they were just into general scrap metal sales. Story said they stole all the 
equipment out of the building too.
