Historic German Transmitter Silenced
Berlin - Sep 4, 2013 - DeutschlandRadio Kultur turned off a historically significant transmitter in Berlin. The 990kHz transmitter traced its lineage back to 1923, but gained prominence immediately after the end of WWII when it started broadcasting programs from RIAS (roughly translated as Radio in the American Sector), which was a news service started by the American forces in the U.S. sector of Berlin. The station covered much of East Germany and provided news (from the western standpoint) for much of the East German citizenry during the cold war.
DeutschlandRadio Kultur is obligated to fund its DAB+ expansion throughout Germany using funds saved by the termination of MW broadcasting, such as the one on 990kHz.
