The Hirschlanden transmitter is a facility of the Deutsche Telekom AG for mediumwave broadcasting south of Ditzingen-Hirschlanden situated at 48°49'47" N and 9°02'15" E.
The Hirschlanden transmitter was inaugurated in 1963 as a transmitter for the programming of Armed Forces Network on 1142 kHz with a transmission power of 10 kW. It uses as antenna a 40 metre tall guyed mast of lattice steel, which is groundfed and therefore insulated against ground. This mast, which has a rectangular cross section, was perhaps built in 1936, but used until 1963 at another site.
