Belgian AM info

As I had conflicting information on the power output of RTBF’s AM transmitters, I contacted someone inside the company with firsthand information. The information I received was very interesting:
a. The 1125 kHz transmitter in La Louvière is a 10 kW transmitter but only outputs about 9.5 kW (Vivacité programme).
b. The 1233 kHz for Pure FM is a 5 kW transmitter currently outputting only 4.1 kW.
c. The 1305 kHz (also Pure FM) is a 10 kW transmitter which outputs 9.2 kW. In winter the transmitter output is reduced to 7 kW as it otherwise produces a kind of fading on the 1233 kHz transmitter.
In the past few months people from Telefunken DRM have been equipping the AM transmitters with a DRM modulator. No news yet as to RTBF’s plans with this.
