Pago Pago - The Tall Tower Tour
Photos by: David B Musick
It's not often we see some Pacific towers, but you'll enjoy
this series of photos taken recently at Pago Pago, American Samoa.

The KVZK-TV tower has been a landmark since the 1970's, and the
'batwing's help push 145kW of signal out across the islands.
The view of the KKHJ-FM tower is unique, it's taken looking down at
it from the top of the KVZK-TV tower!

Photographer David B Musick is Assistant Chief Engineer of KVZK-TV
Pago Pago, American Samoa. He's also been known to dabble in FM
broadcasts during his career.
If the name sounds familiar to New Zealanders, Samoans and Americans,
it's because Musick Point radio station in Auckland was named after
one of his famous relatives who pioneered the Pan Am clipper route
from Oakland to Auckland. Via Pago Pago.
Some 75 years later, David carries on the Musick family tradition of
bringing communications, education and entertainment to the islands
of the Pacific.

That's also a nice little radio heritage story and one we're
delighted to share.
