Description   EN   

These are the very iconic tri-towers located in southwest Charlotte off of Nations Ford Road. They belong to WBT and have unique shapes and colors. They are easily seen from I-485. Although not part of my tallest towers series as they are only roughly 600ft tall guyed towers.

From the wiki: "WBT (known on air as News Talk 1110) is a radio station in Charlotte, North Carolina, broadcasting on the AM dial at 1110 kHz. A 50,000-watt clear-channel station, it can be heard across most of the eastern half of North America at night. It simulcasts on WBT-FM, at 99.3 MHz in Chester, South Carolina. It is owned by Greater Media."

These are only 3 of 8 in the country of this shape. The wiki also has a picture of two of them knocked over after hurricane hugo.

Please take an artistic picture for others to enjoy. No night caching. Thank you.

 You can park closer, but Nations Ford can get kind of busy. I parked here when placing the cache and had no issues then pulling out onto Nations Ford Road.

This is no longer on the fence.  This was supposed to be my fifth find, but it was not there.  I will upload a picture later.  Maybe the CO will send me the code since I really did find this.

Two for the price of one. No wonder this station blasts the air waves the way it does.
