If you zoom in on the Ontario section of the map, you'll see Kempis listed, and likely not coincidentally, microwave repeaters follow the Pinetree Line sites along HWY11 pretty well. Yes, I think I'll be taking pictures of even more old microwave towers in the future.
Was this one, that I found near Westport, Ontario part of the Bell Long Lines system too? I'm not sure. The building was concrete block, not steel.
