270 метров.

Пожалуй единственная доступная вышка в пределах Московской области, высотой в 270 метров. Вышка полу-рабочая но все-же провода, ведущие от построек радиоузла обрезаны.

Башня издает характерный гул за счет натянутой в стволе проволоки (по принципу эоловой арфы). На половине высоты проволока кончается и с дальнейшим подъемом гул стихает. Но на одном из пролетов, прислонив ухо к трубе, можно прекрасно слышать радиостанцию Маяк.

Finally, I have something to share: An abandoned home


I have trouble finding the time to explore abandoned places in my area, but I finally had a chance to take a look at an abandoned home in the town I grew up in. It's been empty for as long as I can remember, and when I was a kid I was always fascinated with it. I used to daydream about living there. My brother says he thought a drug lord must have owned it. He let me know that it's going to be torn down for apartments soon, so we decided we had to finally get a good look at it. It turns out there was a lot more to it than I realized. There were three structures on the property, what appeared to be some kind of root cellar, and a couple things that we couldn't really identify. This was our recon only. We intend to go back when we have more time, it's not raining, and I have shoes that nails aren't likely to stab me through.
