WIBN, 98 GOLD, serves Lafayette and surrounding area in Indiana and Illinois. The photo was taken as the ERI tower crew was finalizing the installation of this 295-foot guyed tower at the end of July 2010. The top 74-feet of the tower is an ERI LAMBDA® Optimized FM Antenna Mounting System and it supports an ERI Model LPX-6C FM antenna. The tower, antenna, transmission line and installation were all supplied to WIBN by ERI. The station had the misfortune it original tower brought down by an accident with heavy farm equipment. The tower was erected at the original location and work started as soon as the insurance settlement was reached.
