The man behind the weather station

The Antenna Company at work      This website was created because of the business that I have (The Antenna Company). The Antenna Company is a tower rigging company I started in 1978. It consists of installing and working on communications towers. The towers range in heights from a few feet to 2,000 feet above the ground. These towers can be located on the highest peaks, to the coast at sea level. Therefore, knowing the weather has always been very important. I've owned a weather station for many years but, have only been online since June of 2007
      The experience of building this website with no prior experience has been an incredible challenge.
      This is a short documentary of my crew and myself filmed and produced by my son Joseph Dondelinger
