This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile25054/Star-Tower,-Cinncinnati.htm>Star Tower, Cinncinnati</a></b><br><br>The Star Tower is a 956 foot (291.4 m) high transmitting tower for TV and FM in Cincinnati, Ohio at 3912′01″N, 8431′22″W. It was built for WSTR-TV, then known as &quot;Star 64&quot;, which still broadcasts from the tower a non-directional antenna for its analog signal, and a directional antenna pointing northwest for digital. It was built in 1991 using a helicopter. Similar structures designed by the same firm exist in Mesquite, Texas (Mesquite Municipal Communications Facility) and the Washington, D.C. area (WDCW, Hughes Memorial Tower), and at a smaller scale on Poor Mountain, Virginia (WPXR). Radio stations that broadcast from the tower include WPRV-FM, WAKW-FM, WAQZ-FM, and WGRR-FM. WRRM-FM has backup facilities at the site.<br />
