Repair work on the long-wave radio station DCF39 in Burg


Dear Sir or Madam,

important repair measures must be carried out on the long-wave radio station DCF39 (139.0 kHz) in Burg.
The reason is a cracked insulator, which must be replaced.

The repair measure extends from 30.03.2020 / 08:00 hrs to 24.04.2020 / 16:00 hrs.
For this reason, the switchover to the replacement antenna is carried out for this period.

The DCF39 radio station is one of the 3 senders that are responsible for transmitting weather forecast data for the WS-K.
During repair work, short interruptions of the transmission operation or range fluctuations are possible, which can lead to reception disturbances in the WS-K.
We regret this very much and are therefore making every effort to complete the repair work as quickly as possible.

If you have any questions regarding the course of the repair work, please contact Mr. Sbick (Tel.: 030 39875494 / 0171 2634349; Email:
Many thanks for your understanding.
