Nordhelle is a 663.3 metres elevated mountain at ebb mountains ( Ebbegebirge), a low mountain range southeast ofLüdenscheid.
Nordhelle is a ski resort at winter time.

As you can see on http://fotos-n.breloehr.de/mk/he-ebbe.htm , there is a fourth tower, a military telecommunication tower at Nordhelle.
As I have no data about its height ( which is less than Nordhelle TV Tower and more than Robert-Kolb-Tower), I did not make a request for it.
