History and function
It went into operation on March 1, 1952 and used a 274-meter-high and two 137-meter-high guyed steel truss masts insulated from the ground as a transmitting antenna. On March 15, 1954, the broadcasting facility was handed over to the ORF . In 1956 the 274 meter high transmission mast and one of the two 137 meter high transmission masts were dismantled and rebuilt - slightly shortened - at the Bisamberg transmitter . From 1967 on, shortwave broadcasts were also made. Although plans were still being made in the mid-1970s to modernize the Kronstorf transmitter, it was shut down in March 1994.
On January 26, 1995, the now dilapidated last transmitter mast was felled by cutting guy ropes. The two Bisamberg transmission masts existed until 2010, when the higher one was the tallest structure in Austria .
