South Mountain Communications Inc Tower

In September of 1998 Brian completed the purchase of a former AT&T microwave tower site on the South Mountain in Lebanon County PA. That hill, also known as Eagle's Peak or Texter Mountain, is at the conjunction of Lebanon, Berks and Lancaster Counties. The elevation there is around 1320 feet above sea level. The heavy microwave tower extends up 75 feet, and additional lighter tower extends up to 100 feet.

South Mountain Communications Site

Much work has gone into fixing up the site, including removal of old reflector horn antennas and waveguide, installation of new antennas and hardline, security systems, etc. Coverage is excellent into Lebanon, Berks and Lancaster counties as well as areas beyond.

Coverage

Currently the site is being leased by:
