At 237 meters/780 feet high, the Sentech Tower is one of Johannesburg's most easily identifiable landmarks. Built in 1962, it was originally called the Brixton or Albert Hertzog Tower, but was changed to its current name in 2001 when naming rights were sold to Sentech, one of the country's first wireless service providers. Today, the Tower serves as a radio and TV tower that broadcasts 18 FM and 7 TV stations. The tower does have an observation deck, but it was closed in 1982 due to anti-apartheid insurgent activities in the city, and has not been re-opened.
