The picture is of the of BBC Droitwich longwave & mediumwave masts which are about 1 mile west of my qth. The two larger masts are 700ft (212mtrs) tall 600ft (182mtrs) apart and support the Flying "T" Longwave Aerial. The longwave transmitter has an output of 500 kw (2 X 250kw) on 198khz and a current of 250 to 300 amps at the aerial feed point, it first went on the air in 1934 on 200khz with a much lower power and is due to go qrt in 2017, the support mast on the right of the picture is insulated from the ground and is used for the medium wave antenna. Between the two larger masts you can just make out two small masts these are also for medium wave the one on the right  is the driven element and the other is the parasite these were erected in 1980s  and for good measure the site is located on a old salt marsh. At 15 minutes after sunset the stations switches to full power, 500kw longwave and 100 kw each on the 2 medium wave stations also to save energy the longwave transmitter has a device fitted  when there is audio  the power drops and the AGC on the receiving radio compensates. Many years ago some locals living close to the station were asked to remove wire loops from their lofts which were being used to power their house lights!!!!!



I was first licenced in 1982 and was active for a few years till the arrival of our two lovely children. I became interested again in 2007 and became a member of the Bromsgrove & District Amateur Club.I am also a member of the RSGB. CDXC and the EPC #22929 My XYL (G1TCK) and son (2E1GXI) are both licenced but not creating any RF or QRM at the moment.Having lived all my life within two or three miles of the BBC Droitwich transmitter I think I have become addicted to RF.

The Photo on my QSL card was taken at Bletchley Park which was the home of the WW2 code breakers and is also the QTH of the RSGB National Radio Centre. I would like to thank the guys there for allowing me to operate the station GB3RS. I would recommend a visit to Bletchley Park
