Watauga County is moving the Tater Hill Communications Tower
to Buckeye Mountain- a process the fire marshal’s office says should be
complete by the end of next week.
The site is prepped- now they’re working on
electrical issues. It’s just a matter of moving the tower, officials say-
communication will not be interrupted during the move.
The new site will allow Watauga County to add an
additional sheriff’s department antenna. The addition should significantly
increase coverage in the west end of the county. There’s no room for an
additional antenna at the current location.
