800 x 1200, 50 кБThe older of the two masts of Horgenzell Mediumwave Transmitter is used for the realization of the desired radiation diagram. It is situated southwest of the main antenna mast and realizes together with it a radiation diagram with a minimum pointing toward Romania in order to prevent jamming a transmitter there working on the same frequency.
As mentioned, it is also insulated against ground, but in opposite to the newer mast guyed in 3 levels.
Originally all its guys were divided by insulators, but its upmost guys were modified in guys without intermediate insulators grounded through coils at the basement of the guys.

800 x 1200, 42 кБThe newer of the two masts of Horgenzell Mediumwave Transmitter is used as main antenna. It is as mentioned insulated against ground and guyed in 2 levels. Its guys are just insulated to the mast and not divided by insulators, which is most common for masts insulated against ground, in order to prevent the flow of radio frequency current through the guys, which reduce antenna effiency and distort the radiation diagram.
This task is done at this mast by coils near the guy basements, over which the guys are grounded.
The advantage of guys grounded by coils respect to guys divided by insulators is that no static charges occur, which require especially at tall masts large insulators and their bridging with overvoltage arrestors, which are difficult to maintain.

800 x 1200, 53 кБHorgenzell Mediumwave Transmitter is a facility near Ravensburg, Baden-Württemberg, Germany for broadcasting the radio program of Deutschlandfunk on 756 kHz with 100 kW. It uses as antenna a directional antenna consisting of two guyed masts insulated against ground with a height of 120 metres, which were built in 1951 and 1978.

800 x 534, 102 кБThe abandoned 110 kV-substation of RCN Konstantynow, Poland. RCN Konstantynow was a longwave broadcasting facility, which transmitted a radio program on 227 kHz ( after 1988: 225 kHz) with a power of 2000 kW, so it was one of the most powerful broadcasting stations in the world.
As antenna RCN Konstantynow used a mast radiator insulated against ground with a height of 646.4 metres. It was until the erection of Burj Kalifa the tallest thing mankind ever built!
It went in service in 1974. On August 8th, 1991 its antenna mast collapsed during change of one of the top guys. It was planned to rebuilt it, but these plans were cancelled after violent protests of people living in the proximity of RCN Konstantynow, who feared that the strong radiation of the transmitter would endanger their health.
Although there was no proof for this statement, as replacement a radio transmitter south of Solec Kujawski with a 330 metres and a 289 metres high mast were built, which was inaugaurated in 1999.
