Vintage television broadcast site erotica. WCKT-TV, 1957

This post is rated R— RCA!!! This is the transmitter site for WCKT-TV which later went on to become WSVN-TV, then WSVN-DT – the new digital site is across the street.

Okay normally I’d save the best for last but— here you go. I COULDN’T WAIT.

WCKT-Control-Room-Vintage

There was no A/C at the site in these days – the large stylized funky vent in the ceiling was connected to a large supply or exhaust fan.

We’re not sure what the roof dishes were all about. STL perhaps with reflectors up the tower?

  1. No shots of inside the transmitter cabinet? You just tease the handle to unlock it. But. If you don’t power down, ka-bang.

    1. Ha. None that I’m aware of having existed. That whole site got stripped out and I think it’s going to be paved over to build more ~luxury townhomes~
