I found the right page, Reading is Unusual aerial system, the all Important Vertical section is Very short,
and looking at the TX Forward power meter, about half way up, I should think, that its below
the One Watt ERP, mainly depends on what earth radials they have on the roof, for it to work against
What sort of coverage does it have ?
I Found this ancient film on Droitwich 198 being built
(see the Knife Switch, H/Safety nowadays, would have kittens, plop plop meow!)
If look at this MB21 pages on Droitwich
It says the Southern most, of the A/B masts, is also used for Five Live 693k
And the other two C/D masts, phased pair, directional, for Talk Sport 1053k and Absolute 1215
Makes you wonder, how long 198khz got, before they reduce the power to prolong the PA Valves life,
They only got one spare set left, and dont want to buy more
Is it still used ? for the Radio teleswitch rate switching on Electricity meters, wonder when contract ends ?
