One of our first antenna projects where we had to remove an antenna from its foundation. The antenna had been used for broadcasting operations by Radio Deutschland RTL 2. The facility with antenna had to make place for new buildings. Our customer, Diefernsehwerft, requested Skybrokers to remove the Earth Station antenna and clean up the site.
