Description
• This tower was originally used for transmitting telex messages to Goose Bay, Canada on the longwave frequency 68.9 kHz, and the call sign of the transmitter was XPH.

• It was also once used for VLF-transmission test to submerged submarines.

• The tower is unique in that it is one of the few in the world constructed on permafront. It is also the tallest structure north of the Arctic Circle in the Western hemisphere.

• The tower contains an elevator that services the tower up to 360 meters.
