Description
The TV and radio transmitter tower (owned by Antenna Hungaria Corp.) is located in a flat region of western Hungary. The tower is surrounded by agricultural fields (mostly crops and fodder of annually changing types) and forest patches. The distribution of vegetation types (60% arable land, 30% forest and woodland, 10% other) within 10 km of the tower is not greatly different from the average for the Western Hungarian Landscape Unit or the whole country (85% of the area is cultivated, 77% of which is agricultural and 23% is forest).
