It's a tower, but not for hams..
Riding the bus from Nara to the airport last week near Osaka, Japan, I
saw several large vertical antennas.. lots of guy wires with insulators,
big capacity hat, base of antenna in a wet swamp (being used as a giant
water trap for one of those multitier driving ranges), large diameter
feedline from large (2m diameter) feedthrough in the doghouse next to
it, etc. Hard to estimate size (zooming by on the bus) but certainly
Seemingly an enormous number of guys (yes, they get typhoons there
sometimes, but this was a LOT of guys).
Just curious if anyone knows what they're for. (At least one is operated
by NHK). LF/MF broadcast? Beacons?
