The triangular tower down by the RCS ranges is 190 feet tall. 190 feet zero inches. It's on a 37-ft diameter turntable, the edge of which just touches the 3 corners of the tower. It shows up pretty well in the 2009 satellite photo.

The photo interpretation people (used to, anyway) use standard building components like doors & windows as references. Back in the bad ol' days, they would have newbie intelligence people go and collect dimensions for the "standard" doors etc in, oh, East Germany or North Korea. I was told stories about facilities being built with special, "standard + x%" dimension fixtures to confuse the image interpreters. But then I was told a lot of stories...
