“This was a pre-emptive expansion,” said President Jim Silke Jr. “Our customers hadn’t experienced any issues, but we’ve been adding new users quickly and wanted to ensure our system was in good order to continue to support that growth while serving our valued long-term customers.”
The three sites are Mary’s Peak near Corvallis; Scott Mountain near Roseburg; and Hagen near Blue River. “Our customers will definitely notice some new bands of coverage as a result of this work,” said Silke.
Silke has served the Eugene, Ore., metropolitan area since the 1960s. The company is a western Oregon and southwest Washington supplier of wireless radio solutions and communication tower services and spectrum.
