Routine servicing of gear at the West Island Weather Station tower in Fairhaven,MA occurs year round, weather permitting. MLBaron is belted up on tower. Inspection of tower structure, wiring and instruments keeps the SkyWarn rig fine tuned. Since 1992 the WIWS tower has been though historic and significant storms including the March 1993 "Super-Storm" (one of the most powerful winter storms along the Eastern seaboard since records were kept) along with numerous blizzards, thunderstorms, hailstorms and a few powerful tropical storms. The tower nicknamed "Dorothy" was erected by Peter Jarosik-KA1WBE. The West Island Weather Station is one of the highest rated American PWS Weather Stations in the world.
