I visited during working hours and talked to the engineer. The two towers that are benchmarks have been there since the early 1960s according to him and are the original towers--they were never replaced. Two new towers were added at some point. They are east of the two that are intersection stations.
Based on my discussion I am changing my log to a find for both towers.
I guess I should have taken a picture when I drove by but I was intent on other marks today.
There are four towers here now.
I am changing my mind on this tower and KW3051. I walked around with my GPSr for about 30 minutes tonight, from tower to tower (there are 4 now so I had to figure out which were KW3050 and KW3051) and, while two of the towers were close to the coords they were off just enough to make me think they weren't the towers in the descriptions.
Second, they did not match the descriptions. For one thing, they did not have swivel bases. The other two towers at the location did, but they are definitely not the towers I wanted. My guess is that the new towers were built right beside the old ones, then the old ones removed, or possibly the reverse order, while the other two towers transmitted.
And one really ODD thing. This is named the SOUTH mast, but it is definitely the NORTH one.
Further research at the FCC's ASR site showed me that the two towers were built in 1983. This is the ASR page for this tower, referred to as Tower 2:http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/AsrSearch/asrRegistration.jsp?regKey=114950
