I suspect the tests using this tower are done by planes flying orbits by or around the tower.

This could be on the face of it something of a find for the OP. It is most likely radar, but it may have other qualities. First off most likely this is SSPAR radar, (Solid state phased array) it is not likely to be a mobile platform, no need for revolving, and can scan to great distances. Sample here at RAF Fylingdales,
Although it is hard to get a view of the array here?? this other link has a picture and the structure is large, and the link has a lot of info and deals with a particular problem for the poster, and also brings into mind other of the OP's options, undetectable in the first instance, and possibly death ray/dar if you want to speculate not even a little.
Good find OP.edit on 19-11-2010 by smurfy because: Text.
