From 1967 to 1976 Radio Volga used the 350-meter SL-3 tower, 2.2 kilometers from the transmitter. After it collapsed in 1976, one of the site's two 210-meter high steel tube masts was used instead. Radio Volga originally broadcast on the longwave frequency 283 kHz.
Beside programs for the Soviet soldiers stationed in the GDR, Radio Volga also broadcast German language programmes from Radio Moscow. After German reunification in 1990, transmitting time was rented to the German-language news station Radioropa Info, broadcasting on 261 kHz.
With the departure of Russian troops from Germany, Radio Volga ceased broadcasting in June 1994. Radioropa Info took over its frequency, broadcasting from late 1994 to 2000, first from Daun and then from Leipzig. In 1999 a new cage aerial was mounted on the 324-meter radio mast in Burg.
