Interesting Facts/Records (in own words): Ufa Komintern transmitter was a huge longwave transmitter, which was
built after Germany invaded into Russia in 1941 as replacement for the Noginsk transmitter near Moscow.
It had two identic antenna systems for longwave broadcasting, which were used for broadcasting on 162 kHz and 198 kHz.
Each system consisted of 4 guyed masts, which hold the antenna. Ufa Komintern transmitter was with 500 kW
transmission power one of the most powerful in the world at those days.
After shutdown of the transmitters the station was demolished in 2007. The large masts were demolished by using explosives.

The sources are not consistent. http://vcfm.ru/vc/Cities/ufa.htm gives for the big masts 190 metres and for the small one 30 metres. However the small ones are taller.
