Raichberg transmitter is a broadcast facility for various FM radio and television programs operated by the Südwestrundfunk on the Raichberg mountain ) at Albstadt, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Today it uses as antenna tower a 137 meters high guyed steel tube mast. Furthermore there is a free standing lattice tower for microwave radio link.
The station Raichberg started broadcast service on 23 December 1950 as FM radio transmitter operating the program SWF 1 of Südwestfunks. The first transmitting antenna was installed at this time on the observation tower “Raichbergturm”, which is close to the current station until today. Since December 1954 a 57 meter high steel tube mast was used as an antenna support. As this tower could not carry TV broadcasting antennas, in 1971 a new steel tube mast went into operation until today. Between September and November 2007 the originally 147 meter high mast was converted to the upcoming digital DVB-T. The old analog VHF antenna was dismantled and a new 62 meter high UHF antenna segment for DVB-T was mounted on the top, thereby the transmission tower shrank from 147 to 137 meters.
