  Warsaw radio mast - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Warsaw radio mast was a frame steelwork construction of steel tubing.
On August 8, 1991, the mast collapsed at 16:00 UTC because of a mistake in exchanging the guys on the highest stock of the mast.
Since the collapse of the Warsaw radio mast, the tallest construction in Poland is the transmission mast for FM-radio and TV at Olsztyn-Pieczewo with a height of 360 metres (coordinates: 53°45′13″N, 20°30′57″E).

The earliest radio transmitters were all longwave transmitters, because propagation of radio waves of higher frequency was not yet understood.
Radio alternator or spark gap transmitters were commonly used to generate the radio frequency carrier wave.
Antennas used at these frequencies are usually mast radiators are used as antennas, which are fed at the bottom and which are insulated from ground, or mast antennas fed by the guy ropes (such masts are usually grounded), T-aerials, L-aerials and long wire aerials.

Unlike shortwave radio, longwave signals do not reflect or refract using the ionosphere, so there are fewer phase-caused fadeouts.
The earliest radio transmitters, including the Alexanderson alternator, were all longwave transmitters.
As aerials are usually used: mast antennas which are fed at the bottom and which are insulated against ground, mast antennas fed by the guy ropes (such masts are usually grounded), T-aerials, L-aerials and long wire aerials.

Because of limitations in the technology of the time, the earliest radio transmitters were all longwave transmitters.
A device called a radio alternator or Alexanderson alternator was commonly used to generate the radio frequency carrier wave.
In most countries of the world, radio amateurs have a frequency allocation between 135.7 kHz and 137.8 kHz, mainly used for extremely slow speed telegraphy (QRSS).
