For some reason I'm happy to see that the antenna is going to be red and white.

Kinda shows the tower means business.


Is it going to have flashing(strobe)white lights during the day?

I really like the tip. It make the tower look that much better.

Infact, I think the tip is what makes this tower look good. Otherwise it's rather bland.

I also think about that, as it is possible. . . . the spire is arising very fast, in little time it will arrive to the maximum height

the gravity ride would have been awesome, they could have put it where we see the grey part of the rising antenna now, if there were 50m of that would have been awesome.

Do they use white strobe lights or red glowing lights at night. I noticed here in Austin some radio towers have a white strobe during the day and when it starts to get dark the tower switches over to red glowing lights.



Also thanks posting the closeup picture ina555.
