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.

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
