List of masts

From Academic Kids

Masts are among the tallest man-made structures. While commonly used on sailing ships as support for sails, radio masts and towers are also used for telecommunication equipment such as radio antennas, also known as aerials in the UK.

Classification

Shorter masts often need no guy lines and usually end up being referred to as a pole, such as a telephone pole (though these often have guy lines), or flag poles. Much taller mast structures use the mast term, with the exception of some hybrid towers/masts that incorporate elements from both and usually just use the term 'tower'.

Masts offer maximum height for minimum cost and form an integral part of the world's communication infrastructure. Physically, masts have a very narrow body that offers vertical support and a series of guy lines under tension that offer lateral support.

The standard mast (in parts of the world--other places still regard them as towers) differs significantly from towers (see List of towers) in rarely being free standing or having any habitable space, excluding attached structures at ground level or service ladders/elevators. Observation decks or restaurants are not present, and most masts function as a very large antenna for broadcasting organizations. Of course there are many borderline structures that fall in the realm of guyed and non-guyed masts and towers.

Hybrid mast structures such as tower structures that have mast-like elements blur distinctions. Also, many large electrical towers or wind-turbine masts are of an unclear classification. Some lists include electrical towers and other hybrid structures.

Some borderline cases:

  • Zendstation Smilde a tall tower with a guyed mast on top (guys go to ground)
  • Torre de Collserola a guyed tower, with a guyed mast on top. (tower portion is not free standing).
  • Pylon of Elbe crossing 2 - a freestanding steel framework tower used as pylon for four circuits of 380 kV. It was built in 1978 and is 745 ft (227 m) high.

A small observation deck on the top of super tall guyed mast, a one-story building with a massive mast on top which is classified as a structural detail, and so on are examples of structures that pose problems for existing measurement classifications.

Free-standing towers sometimes use the mast term to describe themselves, just as guyed masts sometimes call themselves towers.

Masts commonly have the name of the broadcasting designation that uses them, or sometimes of a nearby city or town.

The Warsaw Radio Mast (Warszawa radio mast) was the tallest man-made structure ever made, but it collapsed in 1991, leaving the KVLY/KTHI-TV mast as the next tallest. This includes structures of any type, but does not include things like lines going up to captive balloons or the structures that are the highest above sea level (e.g. a tent on Mount Everest). See world's tallest structures for further analysis.

Towers and buildings with masts on them (that are a hybrid) are in their own list. See List of towers for towers. Note that many guyed masts/masts are called towers and numerous towers call themselves masts.

Design considerations

The ideal height of a mast as antenna varies depending on transmission frequency, demographics for the location, and terrain. For radio systems in the longwave and mediumwave range the value of the height should be in the range between a sixth and five eighth of the wavelength with favourite values at the quarter or the half of the radiated wavelength. This is not always possible. If this is the fact, masts with roof capacity or similar installations must be used.

Longwave/Low frequency antennae

Radio masts for VLF, LF and MF often act directly as aerials and are therefore often insulated against ground. Electric devices on them are fed via cables running through the coils of a parallel resonance circuit which is switched in parallel to the transmitter output. For masts acting directly as aerials, the height of the mast determines the radiation properties.

For high power transmitters in the MW range, masts with lengths around half of the radiated wavelength are preferred because they focus the radiated power better to the ground than constructions with heights of quarter wavelengths, which are preferred of economical reasons for low power medium wave transmitters. A focus of radiated power towards the ground is much desired on frequencies below 3 megahertz, because groundwave propagation is very stable. The usage of masts longer than fifth eights of the wavelength is normally not done, because theses masts show bad vertical radiation diagrams. So the heights of masts for mediumwave transmitters do normally not exceed the 300 metre level. For longwave transmitters, however, the construction of masts with heights of half-wave wavelength is, because of economical reasons (and perhaps problems with the flight safety), in most cases impossible. The only so far realized radio mast for longwave with a height of the half length of the radiated wavelength was the Warszawa Radio Mast at Konstantynow, Poland. For frequencies below longwave the masts have to be electrically enlarged by coils or structures on the top, because the required heights for masts of even quarter wave length are too high.

Shortwave/High frequency antennae

For transmissions in the shortwave range, the mast height has no influence of the efficiency when the masts are used for carrying the aerial. Normally shortwave transmitters do not use masts higher than 100 metres.

For transmissions in the VHF and UHF range the value can vary depending on the area to be served. The cost of a tower must be re-couped primarily through advertising on the broadcasts. Things like population density, how far a signal can travel (affected by terrain for line of sight for some kinds of transmission), cost of a higher tower, maintenance cost, etc. — all must be balanced for an ideal tower size. Two shorter towers may be a better option the one taller one, for example, or a higher tower might not be useful if the signal is blocked by terrain nor if all the listeners are in a concentrated area and a higher tower cannot pay for itself.

List of masts

Virtually all mast structures are pure guyed masts. There is often crossover in term usage as some skyscraper use the tower term, some towers use the mast term, and ironically 'skyscraper' has some word heritage from references to high sailboat masts.

Top masts are ranked by pinnacle height; for ties, the older building is ranked higher. Most are in the U.S.(for the taller ones), the Warszawa in Poland being a notable exception. The larger number, around 2000 ft, are the result of special US rules limiting structures and objects that go above 2000 ft (as a result very few things go above this altitude).

Once again, the list includes guyed masts, almost exclusively radio masts though a few for other purposes are present, as the BREN-Tower. Self-supporting masts are covered as towers under the List of towers, and the borderline cases are mentioned separately (hybrid designs, under water, etc.) elsewhere on this page.

Note:

  • The Petronius Compliant Tower, an oil platform) at 2100 ft or 640 m (to the top of the spire) is the tallest non-guyed structure in existence but it is mostly underwater (taller than all but the Warsaw radio mast). The CN Tower at 553.33 metres (1,815 ft 4.5 in) is the tallest non-guyed structure on land, though it is shorter than many of the guyed towers.

Partially guyed structures

The following towers consist of a free standing basement tower with a guyed radio mast on the top. Except of the radio tower Jauerling, which uses a lattice tower as basement, the basement is made of reinforced concrete.
