Telecommunications towers

Has anybody got the raking of the highest telecommunications towers in the world?
I know Toronto CN tower is the highest, but how many metres?

I add to the list:

Barcelona Collserola Tower: 288m.
Madrid Torrespaña Tower: 231m.

Add yours, please!!

Ostankino Tower data is incorrect, acording to http://www.structurae.net/structures...fm?id=s0000279 is 577m making it the highest.

Thanks to WJfox for the picture taken from this thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=166995

Presumably London over a very large area still functions wit a tower less than half the height of the moscow one.

I'm curious, is there any benefit from these really tall towers?

Well I am pretty sure the moscow one is more of a soviet tower of ego

info on it

- In August 2000 a fire in the top of the tower seriously damaged its structure and the local authorities were even considering to demolish it as security measure.
- Tower is currenly being modernised and strengtned after the fire that took place on 2000, expected completion of the works is before 2004.
- In 1994 TV Ostankino wanted to increase the transmission capacity of the tower to 40 channels. Increasing the height of the tower to 1,845 ft (561 m) was not possible because of a lack of financing.
- Ostankino TV & BC Tower transmits the signals of 11 television stations, 12 radio-broadcasting stations and 17 satellite TV programs.
- There is an restaurant called "seventh heaven" at a height of 334 meters.
