Description   EN   

Note: This cache requires a password to log.

This is the KVLY TV Tower, built in 1963. It is the largest guyed tower in the world and the 3rd largest structure in the world. It is 628.8m tall. The tower is said to weight 864,000lbs, and takes up 160 acres of property because of the guy wire anchor points. The antenna portion is 113ft tall and weighs 9000lbs.

More information may be found here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KVLY-TV_mast

Coords will take you to the building. Look for the 4-digit number right above the door (before the word tower). That is what you will need for the log password.

Try to take an artistic picture for others to enjoy. Please no night caching. Thank you.

Always enjoy these types of caches that allow you to see something that would probably go unnoticed otherwise.  Thanks!

I enjoyed the drive out to the site on DRY gravel roads.  I have misplaced my card reader, so I will post photos when I get a new one and I learn how to use this site.  Thanks for the virtual-we need more of them.  This will be my first posted find for opencaching.
