Listen to Vashon Island’s newest Internet Radio Station Radio Vashon at www.radioVashon.com

Towers on Vashon, as a kid growing up on Vashon Island, kgnwtowers I enjoyed electronics. My dad worked for IBM, This was great because he would bring home all sorts of cool 6, 12 and 24 volt power supplies. Some we fixed others I would tear down and use the parts to repair other power supplies.

On the weekends he would work for KIRO watching the transmitter site on Maury Island. I loved going to the KIRO site with him. At that Time KIRO had a real huge Western Electric Water Cooled Transmitter. The whole transmitter site was impressive.

Growing up on Vashon I got to know the engineers that worked at the transmitter sites on the Island touring their sites. So with my vast knowledge of the Towers on the Island………..the Vashon Tower Tour
