The next four photos show the arrival of the new Harris 3DX50 transmitter. The delivery company, with the unlikely name 'S&M', is the same one that delivered the new Alice transmitter to Mt. Beacon in 2006. These guys know what they are doing. Notice in picture two, the risers they had to use to get the lift gate of the truck up to the level of the building loading dock. In photo three, the output cabinet is being unloaded and in picture four, the power supply cabinet is coming off the truck. This was the heaviest cabinet of the three, weighing in at over 1900 pounds!
