Star Tower, Cinncinnati
The Star Tower is a 956 foot (291.4 m) high transmitting tower for TV and FM in Cincinnati, Ohio at 39░12′01″N, 84░31′22″W. It was built for WSTR-TV, then known as "Star 64", 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.
