KVLY-TV Mast, Blanchard, Traill County, North Dakota, United States

The tower consists of two parts: a lattice tower of 1,950 feet (590 m); topped by a transmitting antenna of 113 feet (34 m). The total height of both is 2,063 ft (628.8 m). The antenna weighs 9,000 pounds (4.3 tons; 4,300 kg), the lattice tower weighs 855,500 pounds (388 tons; 388,000 kg), giving a total weight of 864,500 pounds (392 tons; 392,100 kg). It takes up 160 acres (0.65 km2) of land with its guy anchors. Its height above mean sea level is 3,038 ft (926 m).
Federal rule change
Some time after its completion, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) imposed a policy that states, "Although there is no absolute height limit for antenna towers, both agencies have established a rebuttable presumption against structures over 2,000 feet above ground level." The FCC and FAA may approve a taller structure in "exceptional cases."
