Sutro Broadcast Tower – San Francisco, California

An iconic presence on the San Francisco skyline since its construction in 1973, the three-pronged Sutro Broadcast Tower rises from a hill between Mount Sutro and Twin Peaks. Its 977 ft. (298 m) height improves television reception for Bay Area residents, who previously received signals from many directions, emitted by transmitters scattered through the city’s hilly terrain. Today, the structure hosts 11 television stations, 4 FM radio stations and about 20 wireless communications services. It is the world’s most recognized broadcast tower because of its distinctive shape.
