the "tallest freestanding structure title" is not under control of CTBUH. GZ TV will be (or may it is right now) the tallest com. tower succeeding CN tower.

Antenna
The antenna extends another 150 meter. The antenna is fabricated in 2 parts. The thinner upper 80m of the mast is being construcrted inside the wider and lower part of the mast. In may 2009 the upper part will be jacked into position, and the mast will be completed.
