Information needed! This subject is not strictly a matter for bbceng as it concerns a transmitting station in Ireland, but I have received a question that could probably be answered by visitors to bbceng. The station at Moydrum near Athlone still has its original transmitters from 1932. How does this compare with other transmitting stations around the world? Is there anywhere else that still has transmitters from this period? Click here to see pictures and descriptions (click on the individual thumbnail pictures).
A rapid response would be appreciated as work is presently taking place to determine the future of the Athlone transmitting station, which is no longer in service. If you can provide any relevant information please send me an email by clicking here.
I received the enquiry from a representative of TTC International.
