Interesting Facts/Records (in own words): These towers were the first antenna of Wiederau transmitter. They were at time of completion
the tallest wooden towers of the world. They towers carryed a T-antenna for mediumwave broadcasting. As this antenna produced too much skywaves,
these towers were replaced by a single tower antenna, mentioned in http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=47078 .
