Blaw-Knox-radiator in Lakihegy
Lakihegy is a village South of Budapest close to the border outside of the city on the Csepel island. In 1933 a Blaw-Knox-radiator, 314 meters high, was erected in Lakihegy. It was then the highest building of Europe and is still the highest building of Hungary.

A Blaw Knox radiator is a guided self radiating mast for medium wave in the shape of a double pyramid. It is base insulated.
Before the Second World War Blaw-Knox radiators have been erected in the USA many times, but also in Europe. Some Blaw Knox radiators still exist as well in the USA as in Europa.
