I overheard on Orange 911 EMS (WAU718) the dispatcher talking to T/Highlands Ambulance about problems with the Putnam tower. I thought T/Highlands was dispatched off of the Beacon tower on 157.4500?

Now that I think about it thought, the line of sight might be obstructed because of the topography, but where is Putnam tower? Does any other agency or services use this tower?

I ask because I haven't heard of the "putnam" tower before today

Putnam Valley Tower

There are 2 big commercial towers in Putnam Valley. One is right up the hill from me on Oscawana Lake Road just south of Tinker Hill Road, and the other one (the AT&T tower) is at the north end of town on route 301. I don't know which one your coordinates are locating. The marker on the map could be either one.

It's the AT&T tower on Rt 301. The marker on the map based on the coordinates I posted is pretty definitive if you zoom in fully and switch to satellite view.
