Interesting signal and sign.

I always thought that the mast was short at Winters RD because of aircraft... the antenna defeats that reasoning ?

There is little mass in the antenna compared to the signal mast and heads. A plane would suffer minor damage after contacting an antenna. Many years ago, it was a taller, but still not full-sized signal mast.
