CHCH Television Tower

The CHCH Television Tower is a 357.5 metre-high guyed TV mast located at 481 First Road West in Stoney Creek, Ontario, Canada. It is the primary transmitter for television station CHCH-DT. It is also currently the third-tallest structure in Canada.

When it was built in 1960, the CHCH Television Tower became the tallest structure in Canada. Only three structures built since then within Canada surpassed its height: the CN Tower in Toronto, the mast of Cape Race LORAN-C transmitter (collapsed in 1993) and the Inco Superstack in Sudbury. The CHCH tower ranks twelfth in height among the tallest structures in the Commonwealth of Nations.

The mast is located on the edge of the Niagara Escarpment, so when viewed from the bottom of the escarpment it appears to be exceptionally tall.

Famous quotes containing the words tower and/or television:

    Culture is a sham if it is only a sort of Gothic front put on an iron building—like Tower Bridge—or a classical front put on a steel frame—like the Daily Telegraph building in Fleet Street. Culture, if it is to be a real thing and a holy thing, must be the product of what we actually do for a living—not something added, like sugar on a pill.
    Eric Gill (1882–1940)

    Laughter on American television has taken the place of the chorus in Greek tragedy.... In other countries, the business of laughing is left to the viewers. Here, their laughter is put on the screen, integrated into the show. It is the screen that is laughing and having a good time. You are simply left alone with your consternation.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)
