Interesting. The geometric metal frames at the top of the tower are radar reflectors. Radar waves bounce back very strongly from these shapes, allowing radar on a ship or aircraft to find (or avoid colliding with) this place very easily. It is the same geometry used in miniature on the lenses of cars to reflect light in the dark.
Thank you for joining my group Abandoned buildings.This is the most northern picture in the group, we now have pics from 69 south to 79 north, since I am trying to cover the world in this group it makes me very happy, esp. since I have no plans going to these cold places my self.
