    Just heard it came down in a storm. What a major bummer! And just before the 160 contest.

    That is sad news. I don't think I've ever worked them on 160.

    Sweet Jeebus!

    I wonder which direction it fell - into Russia or Norway?!?!?

    Here's a video of (one of) the antennas.

    Oh, that is terrible news. It was an amazing antenna system.

    Such sad news; I really love that station. I worked them last month during the CQ WW.

    Anyone have links or other information to support the suspicion?

    I meant towers. Obviously, there are multiple antennas on this one tower. (however, maybe they work together as a single antenna, and the tower isn't used for other systems, in which case I may have been right anyway)
