This weekend I was driving around KDAB (Daytona Beach International Airport) which I do often.
Recently they installed a small building, tower (about 30') and three antennas at the approach end of 7L. The building/antennas are located about 100' from the Glideslope antenna/transmitter. And this new installation is about 1 mile from the normal KDAB ATC antennas.
Does anyone know if this is just a temporary setup for the extra aircraft coming in for the Daytona 500 race?
Yesterday I noticed for the 1st time since seeing the new equipment and antennas at KDAB I now can not hear the ground side of tower frequency 118.100 MHz. The ground side of tower frequency 120.700 MHz is much weaker than normal.
At this time I still can receive the ground side of all other KDAB frqs, appears only both tower freqs effected.
Is there any connection to these new antennas & building? The new antenna I saw are not up nearly as high as the rest of KDAB's antennas. Could power output been reduced as well?
Anyone with info on this?
