Maintenance work on the DCF49 radio station in Mainflingen

Dear Sirs or Madams,

at the radio station DCF49 (129.1 kHz) in Mainflingen, annual maintenance work must be carried out on the antenna systems and the tuning equipment of the transmitter.
According to MEDIA BROADCAST GmbH's maintenance schedule, the maintenance work is scheduled for the following period: dea16.09.2020 / 15:00 - 19:00 hrs.

According to information from MEDIA BROADCAST GmbH, this maintenance work can only be carried out in daylight. 

The DCF49 radio station is one of the three transmitters responsible for broadcasting weather forecast data for the WS-K. During maintenance work, there may be temporary interruptions in transmission in the minute range or range fluctuations which may lead to reception problems in the WS-K. As in 2019, we will also try to keep the actual downtimes due to maintenance work as low as possible in 2020.

If you have any questions regarding the course of the measure, please contact Mr. Sbick (Tel.: 030 39875494 / 0171 2634349; Email:

Many thanks for your understanding.
