Berlin Radios signing off

October 17, 2012 at 2:53 pm Leave a comment

Radio enthusiasts have observed the shutdown of the medium wave frequency 855 kHz in the Berlin area. Since the early 2000s Germany has used this radio frequency for transmission of programs in digital mode (DRM), regularly since 2005. In recent years it broadcast programs of the digital knowledge radio DRadio Wissen. In the early hours of 19.9.2012 broadcasts ended on that frequency. And there is no coming back, since the 146-meter high radio mast will be demolished.

Also this year, the Germany radio transmitter site on Britzer Damm ended broadcasts on the traditional frequency of 6190 kHz (Deutschlandfunk), as the historic transmitter was suffered from irreparable damage. Berlin-Britz now remains as transmitter site only for Deutschland Kultur on 990 kHz and for FM stations.
