The Transmitter Berlin-Tegel was a broadcasting facility for medium wave in Berlin-Tegel, Germany It was built in 1933 and used as an aerial wire hung up in a 165 metre high tower of wood framework. In 1940, the height of the tower was reduced to 86 metres. On December 16, 1948 the tower (and a guyed mast under construction, intended to replace the tower) was bombed under orders of the French Commander (Jean Ganeval) at the time, because of concerns of endangering the air traffic of the nearby Berlin-Tegel airport, which was under construction at the time. The transmitters were moved to Koenigs Wusterhausen and installed there. Nevertheless, the transmitter building is still standing.
