Together with the mast, the Goes telecommunication tower is 137 metres high. The analogue transmission tower was replaced by a digital one in 2007. It was 11 metres in height. Before that the tower was 148 metres high. The tower is used not only for television, but also for radio and telephone.
The construction of the tower in Gus was even given priority because of the possibility of using it for telephone connections. During the floods of 1953 many telephone cables were destroyed and people noticed how important it was to have other equipment for that.
Construction of the tower began in 1955. A new technological process was used. Liquid concrete was poured layer by layer on the hardened concrete. The transmission tower was then placed on top of the concrete tower.
