@hcjbgermany, 11 Oct 2011: "This historical transmitter from 1973,built in GDR, will be the first transmitter for the site in Weenermoor, Germany." With photo.
@hcjbgermany, 11 Oct 2011: "It will replace the damaged one until the Collins 3 KW-transmitter is repaired."
Transmission schedule is here (pdf). -- Establishing a shortwave transmitter in Europe would seem a contrarian move, and could be contrasted with Vatican Radio's decision to stop shortwave and medium wave broadcasts to the Americas and Europe on 1 July. On the other hand, this frequency should, in theory, provide a useable intra-European signal. It might be more convenient, and it would use less bandwidth, for HCJB listeners to tune via shortwave than via the (also available from HCJB) internet. I wonder if the site will be used for DRM (Digital Radio Mondiale) shortwave, as HCJB has been an active DRM experimenter.
