Good Morning,

The original tower installed at Cape Race Loran-C station in 1965 was 411.48
meters (1350 feet). However, that tower collapsed in 1993 and was replaced
with a shorter 260.3 meter (854 foot) tower.

The current tower has 4 levels of guys. I believe the original tower had 6
levels of guys. I am looking for a picture to confirm the number of levels.

This particular Loran-C station uses a Top Loaded Monopole antenna which is
"hot" and insulated from the ground.

I have attached a picture of the current tower.
