The mast is 360 meters high, weighs 260 tons and is the highest structure in Poland since the collapse of the mast in Konstantynow (8.08.1991r). It is located in the former military training ground.
It is supported by 5 floors of guy ropes made of steel with a diameter of 5 cm.
The structure is divided into three sections. The longest one (from the ground to the 4th floor of guy ropes) is a truss of equilateral triangle cross-section. The next is a square truss and is located between the top two floors of the lashings. The last part located at the top is a tube made of composite, inside of which is a steel frame and the transmitters attached to it.
The whole structure stands on a steel cone insulated and supported by a second steel cone, which is inverted relative to the first so that they meet at the tips, and the whole is bolted by the base of the second cone to a concrete foundation.
The mast, unlike most similar constructions, does not have a feeder line or ceramic insulators at its base, because it is not a transmitting antenna itself. It serves only as a frame to which various transmitters, mainly TV and radio, are attached at various heights.
