Cell phone tower for Big Sandy

Wayne Alden and Dave Tjosvold have invested in a new cellular phone tower for the Big Sandy area.

It is being installed this week on the Jacobs property, on the south side of CSAH 14 near the Shamrock Cafe.

It will be 324 feet tall and they can enter into contracts with up to five cell phone providers.

The first contract signed is with RCC, or Cell 2000 that was bought by Verizon.

They intend to sign a contract with Cell 1/Cingular, which was purchased by AT & T.

"We're sure others will come on board," said Tjosvold.

He said the permit for the tower was approved by the Aitkin County Planning Commission. There was a room full of people at the hearing but no one spoke against the tower and Sheriff Scott Turner spoke in favor of it.

He said this tower will serve Big Sandy, Minnewawa, Horseshoe and Round lakes and anyone else within a seven mile radius of the site.

"They will have primary, excellent cell phone coverage," said Tjosvold.

The tower is up and the fence is going around it.

It should not be long before a dish is hung.

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
