Electricity pylons also used as radio towers

Post here some pictures or links to pictures from electricity pylons also used as radio towers.
Good examples for such towers are Tower 165 of Facility 337 north of Hochdorf ( https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Cate ... ,_Mast_165 ) and Tower 88 of Facility 318 near Kuppingen ( https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Cate ... 8,_Mast_88 ).

However, there are also some ununsual radio technical installations on electrity pylons:

the pylon of "Elbekreuzung 1" ( https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elbekreuzung_1 ) on the northern bank of Elbe river carries as one can see on https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... _und_2.jpg a radar for monitoring vessel traffic on Elbe river. Perhaps, there are similiar examples in Belgium and the Netherlands.

An other perhaps really unique structure is Ameren UE Tower in St. Louis, Missouri, USA ( https://www.emporis.com/buildings/30590 ... uis-mo-usa ). It is as you can see on https://www.emporis.com/images/show/990 ... t-view.jpg a radio tower used as electricity pylon!

An other very unique example is a termination tower of a 20 kV-line at Mertesheim, which carries an antenna for FM-broadcasting on its top. See https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sender_Mertesheim and https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Cate ... Mertesheim !
