Thursday/ Capitol Hill’s antenna towers

I check out these free-standing lattice radio antenna towers every time I walk over to Trader Joe’s (grocery store) across the street from them.   The ground elevation there is about 410 ft above sea level, to which can be added the heights of each of the three towers – 594 ft (181 m), 637 ft (194 m) and 682 ft (208 m) for an elevation of the top of the towers of about 1,000 ft.   A slowly blinking red light at the top warns low-flying objects (as well as UFOs) at night to steer clear !
