Torre do Monte da Virgem visit
The Monte da Virgem Emitter Center has a tower of 177m and is the tallest structure of its kind in Portugal.
Its construction began in 1993. The first TV broadcast on this tower took place in February 1995.
The Digital Terrestrial Television signal (at this stage with the 4 generalist television channels: RTP1, RTP2, SIC and TVI, and also with RTP3, RTP Memory and ARTV) is broadcasted here.
It is also a point of great importance in terms of hertzian connections, either from Altice's core network or from circuits to different telecommunications operators.
It is also a reception point for signals from the regional delegations of television operators in the northern area of the country.
This facility also houses the communications systems of various entities. The tower is located at 208 m altitude and the visitor's room is 104 m from the ground.
On the 4th October, around 2 p.m., 20 collaborators from Altice Labs had the opportunity to see the inside of this tower. On this day there was a presentation by Altice's colleague Jorge Garcia on all the main points of this tower, which was followed by a visit to one of the highest parts of the tower where everyone enjoyed the apotheotic view over the city of Porto.
