Amateur radio based group rescues released broadcast frequency

When the 'Deutsche Welle' decided to close down one of their 500 kW short wave broadcast transmitters near Munich at the end of 2012, a group containing some German radio amateurs applied for and were allocated the then available short wave frequency of 6070 kHz in 2013.

This group now have an operational 10 kW station on the frequency, using the driver stages from the old Deutsche Welle transmitter. The rest of the transmitter was built by and is run by Rainer DB8QC . The licence allow transmission 24/7 but at present most transmissions are on a weekend during daylight hours.
