Aholming transmitter is a facility for formerly 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 shut down in the early Morning hours of January 1, 2015.
The Aholming Transmitter, which could be received in most parts of Europe, was built between 1986 and 1988 as a Replacement for the older Erching transmitter. This became 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 the former Erching, as it had to be cleared from tall Structures as in its Proximity the new Airport of Munich was under construction.
