The Telecommunication tower on the Grosser Feldberg in Germany is an unconventional mixture of multistoried building and telecommunication tower and from extraordinary design. It was built in 1937 as 53 meters high reinforced concrete construction with an upper section built of wood and which should serve after 1939 as television tower for the Rhine Main area, but because of World War II it was transfered into a radar station. Briefly before end of World War II the tower was heavily damaged by bomb hits, whereby the structure of wood burned down. In 1950 reconstruction of the tower was started. Thereby the lower 5 floors were reused in the 21.20 meters high reinforced concrete base. On these - in contrast to the construction used before World War II - a 17.65 meters high structural steelwork with 5 floors was set up. This again carries a 30.28 meters high wood construction with 9 floors, so that for the tower a total height of 69.13 meters (without the UHF antenna installed on the top) results. Since in these floors numerous directional antennas were set up, all connetions of the wood upper's building had to be manufactured metal-free. They were implemented as wedged compressed wood bar dowels.

A very interesting construction are the 80.5 metre high transmission towers for shortwave in Nauen, Germany. These towers are rotable!


One of the four rotable shortwave transmission towers in Nauen ( http://en.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0011500 )
