Richland Towers and CBS Broadcasting are entering the final stages of an antenna upgrade project that will facilitate the advancement of mobile media broadcast throughout the Miami DMA. The project involves replacing the individual horizontally polarized antennas with a single broadband antenna manufactured by SPX Communication Technology that is elliptically polarized.

The dual input FM broadband facility will initially be home to two full-power FM stations, but it will have the capacity to accommodate up to ten additional full-power FM stations with 10dBc IBOC transmission.
