@coth: where is it exactly situated?
Is it used insulated against ground or grounded?
Is it used for VLF/LF-transmission or for FM-/TV-transmission?
When was it built?
Are there further guyed masts in Russia taller than 360 metres?

Now two towers, which exist no more:


Radio Tower Mühlacker ( http://en.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0012456 ).
This tower was built in 1934. It was 190 metres high and built of wood! It was world's tallest construction ever built of wood!
Infortunately it was destroyed by the SS on April 6th, 1945

Its job does now a 273 metre high guyed mast, which is insulated against ground. This mast is divided by an insulator electrically in two parts.
This mast, which is on the same site, where the tower stood, was built in 1950.


Main Radio Mast Mühlacker ( http://en.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0010708 )

In 2004 a 93 metre high steel lattice tower was built at Mühlacker, which looks similar to the tower, which was destroyed in 1945.


Directional Radio Tower Mühlacker ( http://en.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0013365 )


Radio Tower Ismaning ( http://en.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0010728 ).
This tower, which was 163 metres high, was built in 1932 as a 115 metre high wood tower.
In 1934 it was dismantled and rebuilt on a 39 metre high wooden substructure.
It carried until 1934 with a second tower, which was also dismantled in 1934, but rebuild in Nuremburg, where it stood until 1969
a T-antenna. From 1934 to 1969 it carried a dipol antenna for mediumwave, which was spun between the top and a height of 80 metres.
From 1969 to 1977 it was used for FM-broadcasting.
Although the tower was under monumental protection, it was demolished by explosives on March 16th, 1983, because it was unsafe and it seemed impossible to repair it.
The house under the tower is still standing.

Its job is now done concerning medium wave by this 171.5 metre high guyed mast, which was built in 1969.
It is insulate against ground and divided by insulators 56 and 117 metres above ground electrically in 3 sections.


Mediumwave transmission mast Ismaning ( http://en.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0010731 )

Concerning FM, this 100 metre high guyed mast is used. This mast is as all pure FM-transmission masts grounded.

Name:Liberation Tower
Location: Kuwait City
Height: 372 m
The Telecommunication Centre, which was inaugurated on 15 March 1996, is located in the heart of Kuwait City and stands on an area of 21 thousand square meters. The Communication Tower (Liberation Tower) is the most important component of this centre. Its height of 372 meters makes it the fourth highest tower after those in Toronto, Moscow, and Germany.

The tower is comprised of two main parts: the lower part, which is built of concrete, represents the main skeleton of the tower, meanwhile the upper part is a post made of metal.

The middle part of the tower is a wide public reception hall of 1500 meters which features a restaurant, a cafeteria and a platform to view Kuwait's landmarks.

There are seven wireless transmission stands, which serve domestic and international communication.

Liberation Tower is not only a tourist landmark in both Kuwait and the Gulf region but also a principal link between Kuwait and the outside world. Construction of the tower started in April 1987, and was stopped because of the Iraqi aggression on Kuwait. After liberation, construction work was resumed and the tower was officially inaugurated on 10 March 1996.
