|This 150m antenna tower was built in 1922 (!).|
The Moscow Radio & TV transmitters were located at this tower until Ostankino TV Tower started operation in 1967.
Later, in 1991, Russia started using the FM band (100-104 MHz). Due to missing capacity on Ostankino TV tower (there were located only TV & OIRT radio transmitters) the FM transmitters were put on air on Shukhov antenna tower. At the end of 2001 the modernization at Ostankino's technical facilities were finished, so the FM transmitters were transferred to Ostankino TV tower.
