After half a century on Ostankino tower again

Nadezhda Vedeneeva graduated from the Moscow Electrotechnical Institute of Communications in 1965. She practiced at the television center on Shabolovka, dreamed of working as an engineer there. But fate decreed the girl began to work in the transmitter department of SUPI. Participation in construction of the Ostankino television tower and television center was a very important event for her. For two years, Nadezhda carried out field supervision: she selected appropriate cables and monitored their installation.

The photo from Nadezhda`s personal archive shows 374 meters mark, at which she climbed on by elevator in the form of a cradle. She is standing with the main architector of the TV Tower project Milashevsky V.V. and the main producer of works by Israitel Z.B.

At the age of 76, Nadezhda Alexeevna does not sit aruond. She engaged in ballroom dancing, singing in choir, playing the button accordion. For everything connected with the renovation in her house, a fragil woman is responsible.

Having appeared on the tower after 5 decades, Nadezhda Alexeevna said impressions were amazing. She jokes she had been going here for 50 years and finally done it. She wish the Ostankino TV Tower would stand for more than one century.
