Kind of wish we could keep going on this thread. This one was much more kind than the new one.

The top of Burj Dubai would be an excellent site for FM- and TV-broadcasting and because of its great height, the transmissions could also reach other countries as Iran and Saudi Arabia very well.
So it may be used for broadcastings programs, which the governments of these countries would not like.
What is known about concerns of Iran, Saudia Arabia and other Arabian countries of misuse of Burj Dubai as propaganda transmission facility?

Why is the planned height of Burj Dubai still not be published? On the other hand, is it not possible to find it out by checking lists for flight safety obstacles for United Emirates or by lists of planned broadcasting facilities in United Emirates, because I believe that a lot of FM- and TV-broadcasting frequencies will be newly coordinated in United Emirates for a planned broadcasting from top of Burj Dubai.

i think they're just worried so that nobody can attempt to build a tower in order to surpass the burj, although it probably wont hold its 'world tallest' for god knows how long anyway

DBB concrete structure will go up to 154F e.g. 575m, then there will be the steel structure, which will push it further (but those will be occupied too)

If the Australian government would support the construction of solar tower Buronga in its original version as 1000 metre tower Burj Dubai will not get the tallest structure in earth!
(Besides all other improvements the powerstation Buronga will work more efficiently with a 1000 metre solar tower than with a 500 metre solar tower)
