    Default Broadcast Television Towers discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Broadcast Television Towers

    Hi All,



    It seems that no one has started a collection of broadcast television tower locations.



    If you have ever tried to adjust your television and wished there was a way to know exactly where the tower was so you could get a better signal, this is the place for you (and me).



    Working in television myself I thought it would be cool to start a project with help from EVERYONE.



    I have started a network link folder that can be updated with new tower locations as we go.



    So join the fun and send me or post accurate KML placemarks for the TV station tower locations near you and we will start a collection together. I have started with the towers here in St. Louis Missouri where I live.



    Remember we are looking for the broadcast tower location, not the location of the station or studio.



    Thanks!



    -Mark-

    Here's my next one; Munich TV tower, its over near Olympia Park

    I Also did a search of the file archive and there are lots of TV towers around the world in there, you have some of them.. but I didnt check if you had them all

    My last suggestion is maybe to change the icons of the placemarks from the standard yellow pushpins? Maybe to the webcam icon like i'm using, or maybe something else

    Thanks again!

    Default Thanks for the suggestions!

    Thank you to everyone...

    I will add your files as soon as I can get to it.

    I have left the files as they were when they were given to me, so whatever icons they used is what it is. I did not want to upset anyone by "editing" their files.

    Please send more files as you find them.

    Noone will be offended, its just an icon come up with something cool for it, use the film strip and change the icon colour or something.. make it unique! - It looks more professional when all the placemarks match

    I'll be back with more places in the near future, its a busy day here!
