Curiously, the most powerful transmitter in Germany, which reaches most parts of the country, only broadcasts a program for French-speaking listeners. Because of this, it is unknown to most people in Germany.
Founded in 1952, the Europe 1 Transmitter was planned as a large facility for long-wave broadcasting. As the transmitter, which was only allowed in Saarland at the time as laws prohibited privately-owned broadcasting stations from being constructed in either Germany or France, planned to broadcast both radio and television programs, it is outfitted with several antennas and a concrete tower.
