Jan's link, http://perso.orange.fr/tvignaud/galerie/am/33bordeaux.htm ,
appears to be the antenna Eric saw.  The buildings look like what I saw
in his pics, and on Google Earth.  

F8BPN identifies it as France Info, on 1206KHz.  

The function of the slanting multiple wire (wire coax?) off the side
is still a mystery.  There didn't seem to be an ATU at the base, nor
did it appear that it was connected to the tower at the top.  

Great fun...and too bad Eric's not still in Bordeaux.  He missed out on
several dinner invitations!
