Our Shortwave signals on 6085 kHz and 3985 kHz, originate from a unique transmitter site, located just outside the Eifeldorf Kall-Krekel, Germany.
The 3 'all-purpose' 1kW Rohde & Schwarz SK1 transmitters and antenna's we use and have used, are situated in a former police/army radio communication station, in a post-WWII bunker from the 60s, now in private hands.
Our broadcast facility partner there is 'Shortwaveservice', the German broadcast facilitator that has kept us on the air for 4 years now, with an impressive 100% up-time. ShortwaveService also facilitates airtime on high power (100+ kW) Shortwave transmitters in other countries such as Armenia, Sri Lanka, Nauen, Main (USA) and Ireland, airtime we sometimes book for special events.
Owner and broadcast engineer Burkhard, in his 'Sendezentrum', keeps a large collection of well-maintained vintage broadcast equipment, with many SW-, MW-, FM- and even TV transmitters (+ an 80s TV studio!), including a large collection of Rhode & Schwarz transmitters from the 70s. - (See our exclusive video tour above)
