Obelixx'es thread on polish forum: towers, masts, chimneys etc.

By using http://212.244.179.188/website/Orto/viewer.htm , I found out many of the nowadays state of the area, where the 646 metre tall radio mast Konstantynow once stood. It is a bit amazing, that except of the mast and the radio frequency transmission line from the transmitter building to the mast there are still nearly all installations still there. From the mast itsself, the basement and the anchor blocks still exist and it may be still possible to rebuild it, in the same manner on the same site!


Transmitter Gabin-Konstantynow (RCN Konstantynow), low resoluted


Transmitter Gabin-Konstantynow (RCN Konstantynow), closer up


Basement of former mast (over the 'b' of 'Gabin'), the building above it is the former helix building


Second close up-view of the former helix building and the former mast basement, which is the round concrete plate under the helix building


Southwest edge of transmitter area, the markings in the row are the former mast basements


Former transmitter building and substation. The transmitter station had its own 110kV-subsation on its site, to which run two 110kV-powerlines!


Close up view of former transmitter building. Note the lattice tower, used for directional radio services

It would be a good idea, if someone makes some ground-based pictures of the former transmitter building in Konstantynow and the still existing basement and put it into Wikipedia on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warsaw_Radio_Mast .

Here are some pictures of the relicts of the Konstantynow transmitter mast and the former transmitter building:

It would be a good idea, if they would transform the former transmitter building, which is today unused, into a museum for radio and structural enineering.

Tallest free-standing Radio Tower in Poland?

Which is the tallest free-standing radio tower in Poland? ( No chimney or skyscraper equipped with transmission antennas and no guyed radio tower)

I suppose it is Wieza TV 2 in Poznan ( http://www.skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=26620 ).

All taller structures in Poland carrying transmission antennas are either guyed masts, chimneys or skyscrapers, but perhaps my suspect is wrong.

there was the highest radio antena in the world...
It used to be in Konstatntynów ( wherever it is ) it was 646 meters hoght , but it collapsed in 1991.

Other hihg constructions are for example another radio anthena in Srem which is equal to Eifel tower or even a bit higher (more than 300m )

Shame we do not have such a tall skyscraper

Konstantynow Radio Mast was guyed. According to http://emi.emitel.pl/EMITEL/obiekty....biekt=DODR_W1B the radio tower of Srem is also guyed, but perhaps is there a second tower.

Wydaje mi się, że Obelixx'owi chodzi o konkretny typ masztu radiowego bez tych lin i innych wsporników...

Ok, So I have absolutely no clue about about radio masts, but it was my impression that almost all radio masts are guyed :S ????

I mean, imagine the depth of the foundation you would need, to hold up a free standing tower like that.... If I am talking nonsense, stop me, I have absolutely no clue about these things (which really doesn't help you Obelixx, but at least I contributed my two cents worth )

chodzi o to czy w Polsce są wolno stojące wieże radiowe wyższe od tej poznańskiej, a nie maszty...

Another example: the highest wooden telecommunication tower in the world - the 110,7 m high historical tower-museum in Gliwice (in Silesia) made from a larch beams in 1933:
.

Unguyed telecommunication towers are very unpopular in Poland. You will probably not find any such tower higher than some 100m.
The one posted by marax0 is 76m high.
Another one in Wilkanowo is 75m high.
Another one in Jagodnik at Elblag:


Here complete list of radio transmitters in Poland. The last column says where it's installed (maszt = mast, budynek/biurowiec/EC = building, komin = chimney). In parenthesis there's height of the antenna over sea level (for example when it shows 150+80 n.p.m. it means the terrain level is 150m a.s.l. and the antenna is another 80m over terrain level).

Two notes to the towers mentioned above
The old radio tower of Gliwice is not only a wood structure. It is fit together by bolts consisting of bronze. It has no iron parts!

It is the tallest tower built of wood, which exists today. Its height is 118 metres with pinnacle and 110 metres without it.

The tower of Jagodnik kolo Elblaga is 115 metres tall.

Further Pictures
You can find many pictures on http://ukf.pl/index.php?board=3.0

Here are further examples


RTCN Sucha Gora, concrete tower, height: 120 metres ( http://ukf.pl/index.php/topic,247.0.html )


RTCN Biała Podlaska ( http://ukf.pl/index.php/topic,215.0.html )


TV Tower Bytków, height: 110 metres ( http://ukf.pl/index.php/topic,47.0.html )


RCN Slupsk ( http://ukf.pl/index.php/topic,126.0.html )


RTCN Sobótka kolo Wrocławia ( http://ukf.pl/index.php/topic,90.0.html )


RTCN Łomża ( http://ukf.pl/index.php/topic,31.0.html )


RTON Rabka ( http://ukf.pl/index.php/topic,121.0.html ). How tall is this tower and when was it built? Does someone have more information?


RTCN Zakopane, height: 102 metres ( http://ukf.pl/index.php/topic,64.0.html )

Two other interesting towers


RTON Lublin ul. Raabego ( http://emi.emitel.pl/EMITEL/obiekty....biekt=DODR_E1L )
Does someone know more about this unconventional tower?


Directional Radio Tower Konstantynow, height: 76 metres. This tower was used for a directional radio link from the Palace of Culture
in Warsaw and the RCN Konstantynow, where from 1974 to 1991 the 646 metre mast of the central Polish longwave transmitter stood.
The Directional Radio Tower Konstantynow is obviously today unused.
