World Trade Center Transmission Tower RCA 1970 Bid Proposal Binder and Specifica
II A Rare Set of Documents! This an unusual sale of a collectors item I have had for many years as I try to downside my collection. This series of documents describes the specifications for the construction of the television and radio tower antenna systems that was constructed in the 1970s by RCA in New Jersey for the World Trade Center in Manhattan. As you may or may not know the transmission tower was built by RCA at their facilities in NJ and then trucked to the construction site in lower Manhattan in sections and erected on the top of the tower as one complete antenna array, 315 feet tall, attached to the roof of World Trade Center Tower One. This made the top of the TV tower 1,729 feet above the street. This series of documents describes the overall concept, each tower section and antennas for each broadcaster as well as the Master FM antenna. This binder is quite factual from its descriptions as I know first-hand having climbed the tower twice in my career to inspect antennas there. This collection of documents contained in the pictured binder is Volume Two of the specifications for building the tower and the antennas. Some of the sections of the document include. Drawing of Support Tower with Antennas. Drawing of Support Tower without Antennas. Specifications of Equipment for each Television Station. Support Tower and Accessory Items. Also included is the actual blueprint for the Channel 31 VEE-ZEE antenna itself in all its detail. The World Trade Center Antenna that was constructed by RCA at this time was truly a work of wonder inside of out. This set of documents begins to shed some light as to what was behind it all.
