Pohorje transmitting site is located in a forest area on the Pohorje Mountains west of Maribor, at 1056 m above sea level. The 72 m lattice tower is designed as free-standing tower but it is guyed in two levels in six directions. Access to the transmitting site is via asphalt road from Hoce and cable car located 200 m from the site. Because of excellent geographic location the Pohorje transmitting site covers a large part of the north-east Slovenia.
First broadcasts from Pohorje transmitting site started in 1963 on frequencies 88.5 MHz and 96.9 MHz for two radio stations and on TV channel 11 for one television available at that time. Currently all public radio and TV services are broadcasting from this site including two private stations Radio Center on 103.7 MHz and a little lower on the slope there is also Radio City transmitting site operating on 100.6 MHz. This transmitting site is also used for digital terrestrial television broadcasts.
