/\ I don't think it was used as a TV tower, it was just an observation tower with restaurent. It was build because there was a lot of leftover materials from the contruction of a steel bridge (Lillebeltsbroen).
I do not believe that Odinstårnet was used for TV transmissions, because TV was in its childhoods, when it was built and as I know there were no TV transmiussions at Denmark before World War II at all. But from its design, it would be well usable for this and perhaps there were already some plans for this before its destruction!
However its construction could have been used for carrying a long wire antenna for medium wave transmission.
Why was there so much leftover materials from the contruction of Lillebeltsbroen?
I just read a bit more about it, and I'm now 100 % sure it wasn't a TV tower, cause TV in Denmark didn't start before the 1950s. It was made just for the purpose of being an observation tower (with it's 3 resaurants).
It turns out the tower was made from the huge steel tubes they used to pour the pillars for the bridge in.
