In order to ensure that Switzerland is provided with broadcast services (radio and television programmes) and telecommunications services (mobile communications), radio transmitters must be operated. The transmitter sites are shown on an overview map.
For each broadcasting station the broadcast channels and corresponding frequencies are indicated. More detailed information on an individual installation can be obtained from the authorities competent for protection of the environment (canton or municipality).
On the map you will find the locations of the broadcasting stations (radio and television) and the base stations for mobile communications. These are represented as different coloured points.
It is possible to download a list of broadcasters of VHF programmes transmitted in Switzerland.
For audiences beyond Switzerland's borders, SRG SSR idée suisse provides a multilingual news and information service on the internet entitled swissinfo.
