Frankfurt (dpa / lhe) - Due to urgent weather-related repairs at the Großer Feldberg transmitter in the Taunus, some radio and television users have to adjust to a disturbed reception on Friday.

VHF radio programs and the digital aerial television DVB-T2 HD are affected, which are to be switched off between 1:00 p.m. and 2:45 p.m., as the Hessischer Rundfunk announced on Thursday in Frankfurt.

Because of the heavy snow and ice load, a piece of a German air traffic control antenna broke off and must now be secured.

For security reasons, the neighboring hr transmission systems would also be shut down.

The VHF waves hr1 (94.4 MHz), hr2 (96.7 MHz), hr3 (89.3 MHz), hr4 (102.5 MHz) are affected.

The same goes for Deutschlandfunk (98.7 MHz) and Hit Radio FFH (105.9 MHz).

During this period, reception of the radio programs hr1 (98.3 MHz) and hr2 (93.1 MHz) from the Wiesbaden location and hr3 (88.9 MHz and 91.1 MHz) from the Schlüchtern and Bingen locations will also be disrupted.


In addition, the broadcast via the DVB-T2-HD channels K42, K34, K22 with all programs from ARD and ZDF is affected.

The offers of the commercial TV providers are also impaired.
