World's tallest Blaw-Knox

This is a great little site. Look how shiny clean those coils are!

The 314m (1,030 foot) Lakihegy transmitter tower in south of Budapest in Hungary.
135.6KHZ @ 100kW
540KHZ @ 150KW

Forget the red shining coils, how about that pretty red headed lady engineer! (Pg 5 first photo). I always believed women are excellent engineers no matter what. And beautiful to look at, work with, and take out to breakfast after an all nighter at the tower! :wink:

She can keep my coils clean and in tune anytime :!: :!: :!: :D :D :D

Well..its a good thing they got all that in well locked, fenced in and CCTV monitored building and property. Even with all that, good thing it is all in Budapest and not in the US. That copper would be LONG gone a LONG time ago!

Pity the PDF link doesn't work. Would like to see that roadmap in detail. Pity the pictures don't have a larger higher resolution counterpart link..especially Page 5, picture 1! 8)

When something gets in the way...either try to work with it, or go around it and solve the problem.
