Huntley Tower Struck by Lightning

beaconDuring the early morning of June 19th as storms rolled through the area, lightning struck the Huntley Road tower site (reg#1268153). Although there was no damage to the radio equipment, it appears the tower beacon control system was damaged and the day time strobe light is not functioning. The tower beacons were placed into night mode (which was unaffected) and will remain that way until TriCounty Tower Service can make repairs early next week.

A “Notice to Airmen” was filed with the FAA under ticket #06020ZZ. A full service message will be sent when the work is complete.
