3) • AM antenna:
In August 2001, a small-medium wave antenna was installed on the site.
It is an inverted-V antenna consisting of two wires, which are fixed on the pinnacle of an only 10m high tower and running diagonally to the ground.
During IFA 2001 it was used for broadcasting a program on the mediumwave frequency 1485 kHz with a power of 1 kW in DRM-mode as part of a single frequency network consisting of
a transmitter in Rüdersdorf and one on Berlin-Schäferberg. Latter transmitter used a T-antenna spun between the telecommunication tower ( http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=468 )
and Funkturm Berlin-Schäferberg (http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=82393 )
