I realize this is an old post but it contains factual errors. I was doing research which led me here.

It was and still is 365.25 meters tall. It was never demolished. The OMEGA tower was operated by the US Coast Guard. As global positioning evolved, the OMEGA system was no longer needed. Since the shutdown of the Omega Navigation System, it is used for VLF transmissions to submarines. Today it is operated by the US Navy.
