Summary

2000-03-10: St Anthony NF Communications tower collapsed due to ice build- up. Frequencies re-routed to an adjacent test tower resulting in reduced range. Impact on users minimal. Technical services personnel advise that test tower is also damaged and in danger of collapse. Should this occur Gander ACC would lose high level and low level peripheral frequencies.
