Interesting Facts/Records (in own words): Transmitter Stuttgart-Hoffeld went in 1926 in service for radio supply of Stuttgart area.
It used as antenna a T-antenna span between two 100 metre tall slim free-standing steel lattice towers. In 1930 it was replaced by M├╝hlacker transmitter, but was kept as backup unit until at least 1934.
Use of facility between 1934 and 1945 is unknown.
After World War II it was used for FM and TV-broadcasting until Stuttgart TV Tower was completed.
In 1956 first of the two towers was demolished. The other tower was later demolished.
Today there is a stadium on the site. Former transmitter building is used as club home today.

No. Any T-antenna suspended between two towers is counted as one entry, unless this is somehow different. If it's different, you have to show a picture.
