Radio towers in Norway

On http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ures_in_Norway many radio towers in Norway are listed. Among these are several concrete towers and partially guyed towers. Unfortunately pictures and technical data of these towers, which are among the tallest in Norway are barely available.
So if you know the height and year of built of these towers please post them in the list

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ures_in_Norway

or here in the forum. Please post also pictures of the broadcasting towers.

Where can I get heights of radio towers in Norway? Is this possible online?

Why not just make a call or send a mail to the authorities? I've no clue who that is, but you'll get much better answers than you will ever get here. Samferdselsdeptartementet would be a good place to start.

I'm not sure who does the day-to-day work on them, but they belong to Post og teletilsynet.

The one in Aukra komune isn't listed, it must be 200m or so high, I can see it from my house, it's a guyed mast.

In regards to some of the towers, the local fire department is the right authorities to contact. Note that it can be a little hard to figure out what municipality a particular tower is located in.

I will try it. But please try also to find them out.
In fact the list of tallest structures for different countries in Wikipedia is for Norway nearly one of the worst from all European countries!

@KiwiRob: Add the tower to the list, please.

My dad once called the planning office in Halden to find out the height of Høyås-mast, they gave the number 236 meters, wich in real life looks a lot more reasonable than 320 meters....

A better photo of Høiås-masta. There is a small observation-tower nearby that offers great views If it were not for the foggy weather one could see all the way to Tryvann and further

Do you know how tall the Tryvann-mast is? The one next to the Tryvann tower.
