Facts

  • The mast was a part of the German DECCA Chain, which was very important for aircraft navigation in former West Germany until 1992. It was established after Berlin Blockade in order to help pilots find their way. It got obsolete after end of World War II and was shut-down in 1992. The mast, which was insulated against ground for a very high voltage level, was not dismantled. Its height was reduced from 101 to 60 metres, it got new guys without insulators and was transformed in a mast for FM-broadcasting capable carrying small directional antennas. DECCA was a radio navigation system, which worked on frequencies between 70 kHz and 150 Hz. It got obsolete by the introduction of GPS.
