Aholming transmitter is a facility for broadcasting the program of Deutschlandfunk on 207 kHz with a power of 500 kW at day and 250 kW at night between Aholming and Ottmaring in Bavaria. It was shutdown in 2014
Aholming transmitter, which can be received in most parts of Europe, was built between 1986 and 1988 as a replacement of Erching transmitter. This was necessary as the nighttime operation on 207 kHz requires, according to the Geneva Frequency Plan a directional radiation pattern for whose realization a second mast was required. This mast could not be built on the site of Erching, as the site had to be cleared from tall structures as in its proximity the new airport of Munich was under construction.
