Radio Mast Thule was lectrically insulated against ground. It had one elevator inside, that run until a height of 360 metres.
Radio Mast Thule, whose construction was similiar to that of Forestport Tower, was used for transmitting telex messages to Goose Bay, Canada on the longwave frequency 68.9 kHz. The callsign of the transmitter was XPH.
Further it was used for VLF-transmission test to submerged submarines.

An interesting fact is that Radio Mast Thule was found on permafrost soil.
