Hallo Felix
Dein Tipp war richtig. Habe mal hingeschrieben. Rückantwort kam soeben.


Thank you for your report and I confirm the details are correct. These
transmissions were to fault-find on a 250/300 kW sender at the UK HF
transmitter station at Woofferton.

These duration of these tests can be variable as the engineers can
sometimes need a long time to establish a fault or they may interrupt the
test, make an adjustment and resume. This is particularly so if the fault
is of an intermittent nature.

Babcock, Woofferton is the only remaining UK HF sender broadcast station
and also is the only one with this transmission test audio and email

The audio is contained in a file play-out system and incorporates
non-copyright music and voice announcements from one of the engineers,
Martin 2E1EKX at the transmitter site.

Thanks for your interest.

(Retired) Senior Transmitter Engineer Woofferton 1982-2012.
