Yes, they were. But I would prefer two entries as written in the book "Die Geschichte der deutschen Mittelwellen-Sendeanlagen von 1923 bis 1945", ISBN 978-3-939197-51-5, there are some sources, which claim that the second tower was 121 metres tall. However the same book claims also that this is very contraversional.

It's a reason to make two entries if these towers had different heights.
