It was recently brought up from one of the southern states. New towers could show up anywhere.
I know that the DEC has (or at least, had) a few towers in storage that they could have auctioned off. There were tentatively plans at one point to erect one of them at the Five Rivers Environmental Education Center, but nothing ever came of it.
