KDLT's mast, at 1,999 feet high, makes it one of the tallest structures not just in South Dakota but in the world. A handful of other transmission towers are the same height or slightly taller; the only buildings that top it are the Burj Khalifa and the Tokyo Skytree.


While the KDLT mast may be the highest, itís just one of many communication towers in this part of the state. Just down the road sits the KELO TV tower, a 1,985-foot-high marvel of engineering.



Hereís what KDLT's mast looks like from 268th Street, a country road that marks the border between South Dakota and Iowa.
