Gerbrandy Tower Lopik

The Gerbrandy Tower (Dutch: Gerbrandytoren) is a tower which was built in 1961 in the Netherlands. It is situated between Lopik and IJsselstein. The Gerbrandy Tower is used for directional radio services and for FM- and TV-broadcasting. It is not used as aerial for the mediumwave transmitter Lopik. This transmitter uses a guyed radio mast with a height of 196 metres and is situated a few kilometers away from the Gerbrandy Tower. The Gerbrandy Tower consists of a concrete tower with a height of 100 metres on which a guyed aerial mast is mounted. Its total height was originally 382.5 metres, but it was reduced in 1987 to 375 metres.
