The Jested transmitter is undoubtedly an exceptional construction, both in appearance and location at an altitude of 1012 m at the top of the mountain of the same name. It was first opened on September 21, 1973.
It often blows very hard here. Once I experienced a wind so strong, that even a braked car could hardly be stopped - gusts of wind moved it smoothly across the icy ground. Other times it was necessary to pierce the tips of the tripod's feets deep into the ground, otherwise the wind immediately overturned him and carried him away.
Even the night in the photograph was very windy. Flying clouds, red and white lights, along with a mighty roar of wind, created the impressive atmosphere of the launching spaceship.
