A top-mounted elliptically polarized TRASAR® television antenna

The antenna pictured in East Tennessee PBS’s Sneedville, Tennessee, main facility WETP. The signal serves communities in northeast Tennessee, southeast Kentucky, and western North Carolina, and Virginia. This is an elliptically polarized antenna, and so the climbing facilities are a fiberglass ladder to minimize distortion of the vertically polarized azimuth pattern. The antenna is installed on a 540-foot guyed tower ERI manufactured and installed in 2005.
