(Christian Milling-D, Funkhaus Euskirchen Kall, March 25)

Der Mitteldeutsche Rundfunk gibt zum 1. Mai 2013 seine noch verbliebenen
Mittelwellen auf. Hintergrund ist eine Entscheidung der zustaendigen
Kommission zur Ermittlung des Finanzbedarfs der Rundfunkanstalten, die
Betriebskosten dieser Sender ab 2014 nicht mehr anzuerkennen. Darauf, die
Mittelwellensender noch bis zum Jahresende 2013 zu nutzen, verzichtet der
MDR. Die hierfuer bereitgestellten Gelder werden stattdessen fuer DAB-
Sendungen verwendet, in die der MDR grosse Hoffnungen setzt.

Die Kommunizierung des Endes seiner Mittelwellensendungen sucht der MDR
auf ein unumgaengliches Minimum zu beschraenken. Hierfuer gewaehlt wurde
der Weg, entsprechende Hinweise in das Programm von MDR Info
ausschliesslich auf Mittelwelle einzustreuen. Dies ist technisch ohne
weiteres moeglich, da die Programmzufuehrung zu den Mittelwellensendern
ueber gesonderte, vom UKW-Netz unabhaengige Uebertragungsleitungen laeuft.

Bei diesen Sendern handelt es sich um die Standorte Wiederau bei Pegau auf
783 kHz, Wilsdruff auf 1044 kHz, sowie Reichenbach bei Goerlitz auf
1188 kHz.

Die Frequenz 882 kHz aus Wachenbrunn bei Themar war bereits am
4. Juli 2011 stillgelegt und die Sendeantenne nur zehn Tage spaeter
abgerissen worden, nachdem das Gelaende an einen Investor verkauft wurde,
der hier einen Solarpark errichten wollte.

Diese Standorte hatten 1998 neue Sendetechnik des Typs M2W der damaligen
Firma Thomcast (heute Ampex) erhalten. Da die in Wiederau vorhandenen
Mittelwellenantennen abgaengig waren, entstand dort auch eine neue
Antenne. Fuer sie wurde wieder die DDR-Konstruktion einer in Dreiecksform
ausgefuehrten Flaechenantenne gewaehlt, die kostenguenstig zu erstellen
ist, durch ihre nicht steuerbare, amorphe Abstrahlung allerdings auch
nicht die Leistung aufwendigerer Antennensysteme erreicht.

Der Sender Wiederau zog in den letzten Monaten verstaerkt die
Aufmerksamkeit auf sich. Hierfuer sorgte zunaechst ein Blitzschlag, der am
2. Mai 2012 um 22.42 Uhr alle Leistungstransistoren des Senders
zerstoerte. Nachdem selbst der beim Senderhersteller vorhandene
Ersatzteilbestand nicht fuer eine Reparatur ausreichte, wurden mit
umfangreicher, jetzt vergeblich zu nennender manueller Loetarbeit bis in
den folgenden Sonnabendnachmittag hinein (5. Juni; Einschaltung um
14.12 Uhr) die Transistoren auf den Platinen vor Ort ausgetauscht.

Erstmals im September sollte in Wiederau dann der nicht mehr genutzte, als
Mittelwellenstrahler bereits seit ca. 1985 nicht mehr brauchbare Mast J1
auf dem Wege einer Sprengung beseitigt werden. Hierzu ist es jedoch bis
heute nicht gekommen, nachdem eine Gefaehrdung der aktiven, unmittelbar
benachbarten Anlagen nicht mit hinreichender Sicherheit ausgeschlossen
werden konnte.

(VOA via Peter Hansen, Bethpage NY-USA, dxld March 31)

USA   The only AM station on Catalina Island in California has shut down
its transmissions from there. KBRT has just restarted on 740 kHz with a
new 50 kW daytime signal using 4x86M masts around 33 49 45 N  117 38 20 W.
The new Nighttime signal comes from the same array with 190 Watt.
Obviously since erection of the array has been so recent there are no
images to look at on GE etc yet. I have no idea what will happen to the
Catalina Island / Avalon site.

[later]  KBRT move was a Crawford project, here is Ben Dawson for his
clarification. (Dan Goldfrab-UK, mwmasts March 26)

'1. The "Oak Flat" site was originally used by the station licensed
on 830 kHz, KLAA, Orange, CA, Facility ID # 50516. (Original call KSRT,
then KPLS, then KMXE).

It was a 3 element in-line array. The station moved from the site and
increased power a few years after it's original constuction, and then
(during it's KPLS days) obtained a CP for another substantial power
increase and antenna change. (We performed the original engineering for
the schange.) A later owner modified the design of the antenna system
before it was constructed, to make it simpler (and in my opinion much less
desirable) and that is its present mode of operation.

2. KBRT has been faced with the fixed date and unalterable termination of
its lease on Isla Santa Catalina for some time. In searching for a new
site, the environmental, land use, cost, and other restrictions were very
troublesome. We suggested the use of the Oak Flat former 830 site, in part
because we felt it would not be tremendously difficult to obtain
environmental and land use permits, and in part because since there had
been a previous use, there was a substantial amount of measured
conductivity information for the site which would allow confidence in
prediction of its service from there, as well as accurate prediction to
prevent interference and allow FCC licensing without difficulty.

3. The entire Avalon facility will be dismantled and all equipment
including the towers removed. I do not know if the transmitting equipment
building will remain or if it will also be dismantled.

Interestingly, at the time of the original designation of use of 760 kHz
at San Diego sometime back in the 1960s (which replaced 540 kHz there,
which had to be abandoned because it conflicted with treaty obligations to
Mexico, and the station involved could not return to it's original 550 kHz
because of changes to 550 kHz at Bakersfield), the suggestion was made
that since 760 created interference to the pre-existing 740 kHz Avalon,
Avalon should be moved to 830. That was not done, because the suggestion
came too late in the legal process to allow consideration of it. (A
process known as "estopped" in U.S. and I think also British law.) In my
opinion, 760 should not have been allotted to San Diego, and 830 should
have been used there instead.

Here is a link to photographs and a narration of the construction by
Crawford Broadcasting's eminent Director of Engineering, Cris Alexander.
