Nowadays state of the transmitter Konstantynow, where once tallest structure stood

By using http://212.244.179.188/website/Orto/viewer.htm , I found out many of the nowadays state of the area, on which the tallest construction built so far, the 646 metre tall radio mast Konstantynow once stood. It is a bit amazing, that except of the mast and the radio frequency transmission line, which run from the transmitter building to the mast there, still nearly all installations are in places. From the mast itsself, the basement and the anchor blocks still exist and it may be still possible to rebuild it, in the same manner on the same site!


Former transmission site Gabin-Konstantynow (RCN Konstantynow), low resoluted


Former transmission site Gabin-Konstantynow (RCN Konstantynow), closer up


Basement of former mast (over the 'b' of 'Gabin'), the building above is the former helix building


Second close up-view of the former helix building and the former mast basement, which is the round concrete plate under the helix building


Southwest edge of transmitter area, the markings in the row are the former mast basements


Former transmitter building and substation. The transmitter station had its own 110kV-subsation on its site, to which run two 110kV-powerlines!

This is the current tallest structure on earth, the KVLY Mast in North Dakota. It was built before the Konstantynow mast, but regained the title of tallest in 1991.

It is 629 m tall.

Here are some pictures of the relicts of the Konstantynow transmitter mast and the former transmitter building:

It would be a good idea, if they would transform the former transmitter building, which is today unused, into a museum for radio and structural enineering.
