re Wimpel für Eurdorf - aus KOR.
Hier liegt noch ein oller Wimpel von Eintracht Frankfurt aus 1961 herum ...

Die Koreaner haben ihr Geld lieber solide
für neue Continentals aus Dallas TX USA ausgegeben.

Seit dem 25. Novemver hat man den/die neu installierten TX bei Tests gehört.

BF aus Hessen hatte diese Beobachtung weiter gegeben:

Thanks to Bernd Friedewald (DK9FI) for the following email:

"Many thanks for the tip. Great! Just put on remote PERSEUS SDR in Japan
and they are still there at 1642 UTC. Looks for test ...

I remember, when I was at the HFCC conference at Dallas we visited
Continental {tx factory}. Here we saw a 100 kW (or more) transmitter(s)
available for delivery to South Korea. Maybe this is one of them, because
KBS is still using the very old transmitters."

Appreciate his feedback.
