Flensburg-Engelsby transmitter is a facility of NDR for mediumwave, FM and TV-broadcasting at Flensburg, Germany. It uses as antenna mast a 214.5-metre (704 ft) tall grounded guyed mast, built of lattice steel, on which a cage antenna is mounted for mediumwave broadcasting.
Flensburg-Engelsby transmitter is the successor of the former transmitter situated at in the city part Jürgensby, which went in service in 1928. It used as antenna tower a 92-metre (302 ft) tall wood tower, in which a fading-reducing half-wave antenna was fixed. It was one of the few functioning transmitters of Germany at the end of World War II.
In 1948 this facility transferred to NWDR, the predecessor of today's NDR. As there was not enough space for expansion at Jürgensby, the site was given up in 1957 and the wood tower was dismantled.
