Grain Bin Tower Communications or Something Else

Want to talk about grain and the 2012 summer's lack of rain? Then you need a big tower to get the word out to the masses. Not all is as it appears. Grain bins are located in the background of the tower. Three tracks of the Union Pacific railroad are just this side of the tower. As it turns out this tower is a relay tower for UP communications to its trains. Now you know.


  1. We shared a patio restaurant meal tonigbt with a couple from Iowa!!! They're here so he can take a fly fishing learning adventure.

  2. I wonder if microwave towers will become scarcer as fiber optics and other wireless types increase. nice pic
