TV tower from top down


Title
TV tower from top down
Description
It might make you a little dizzy to look at this photo, especially if heights aren't your thing. The photo was made from the 1,845 foot level of the WNCT/WITN television tower at Grifton, N.C., looking straight down. The tower has an elevator for workers to get to the top for servicing the television and FM radio antennas, which are to the top of the television antennas, 2,000 feet. On a clear day numerous towns can be seen from the top.
