During the violent wind storm on the night of December 13/14, 2006, WARA’s repeater tower on Mount McDonald was badly damaged. Because of the tower’s precarious nature, and because another wind-storm was immanent, the tower had to be cut down to save neighbouring emergency structures. There was no time to save parts of the tower or any of the antennas mounted on it. As a result, the tower and most of the antennas were destroyed. Read more on the Tower Fund by clicking on this link.
