I can offer you pictures from the following masts:

Warszawa Radio Mast


KVLY-TV mast


KXJB-TV mast


KLDE Tower


Radio Tower Hoyt


Interestingly Fox TV-Tower (height: 600.4 metres) and KTRK-TV Tower (height: 601 metres), both situated in Missouri City, Texas, USA are only approximately 30 metres apart from each other, which you can see on the satellite image http://www.terraserver-usa.com/GetIm...&logo=1&lp=--- !

7 masts taller than 600 metres are at Missouri City, Texas. These are:
Senior Road Tower
Fox-TV Tower
KHOU-TV Tower
KTRK-TV Tower
Houston Tower Joint Venture Tower
American Towers Tower Missouri City
Richland Towers Tower Missouri City
