I suspect the main reason for most of the relays were to improve nighttime reception, as Radio Tirana used to totally obliterate 1215 khz.
1215 is much clearer at night now so I guess there is no longer a need for the Hoo transmitter on 1197.
Shame as despite being closer to Manningtree the Hoo transmitter still gives better audio and signal at my location in Harwich. That said I don't know anyone who listens to this station on AM anymore, though I occasionally listen on DAB.
