Interesting Facts/Records (in own words): Two wooden lattice towers placed 310 metres apart used to carry the T-antenna of the first antenna of Mühlacker transmitter, the
first high power mediumwave broadcasting transmitter in Germany. As this antenna produced much skywave resulting in spite of its high power in a small fading-free reception area,
this antenna was replaced in 1933/1934 by a wire antenna with skywave-surpression, which was installed in the tallest wooden structure ever built ( http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=40728 ).
In 1934 both towers were dismantled. One of the towers was rebuilt at Frankfurt-Heiligenstock, the other at Koblenz. The basement of the southern of these towers still exists.
