Radio Tower

This 40-foot tall radio tower was designed by CLUI Residence Program participant Deborah Stratman and built by her crew from Chicago as part of her Power/Exchange project. The tower acts as a sort of scanner/sampler for the invisible radio spectrum of the area. A kiosk at its base enables visitors to listen to different radio frequencies in the region, such as aviation channels, fast food drive-thrus, casino security, and others. There is also a transmit function in the kiosk, with low powered FM and Citizens Band, so users can communicate with some of the thousands of truckers, residents, and transients in the area and on the interstate.
