1940s RCI shortwave transmitter finds new home in old jail

The Radio Canada International 1940's 50 kw shortwave transmitter has been sold to Bill Steele who has turned a former jail into B&B accomodation

The transmitter was installed around the end of the Second World War and used until the 1970s. The Radio Canada International site outside Sackville continued to broadcast, but the 50 kW transmitter, five metres long and 2½ metres wide, was decommissioned and used as a showpiece.
