Notes on Visit: 

The most famous one of this seemingly random bunch of communications towers. As well as the main pod, a trip further up the tower to the SkyPod was well worth the visit, to really get a perspective on the sheer height of it. It held the record of both the world's tallest free-standing structure and the world's tallest tower for 34 years until the completion of Burj Khalifa in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and Canton Tower in Guangzhou, China in 2010. Visit was on a clearish day and the view was breathtaking. The superlative facts about it are too many to write about and beyond the scope of this summary. Put, in short... It's a big one.

Or, taking some of my photos from 1990...
