    Can the moderators please move this thread to Forums » BeoWorld around the world! » BeoWorld Chinoise

    First B&O (1976) was a Beogram 1500 ... latest (2011) change has been to couple the BL11 with the BL6Ks *sounds superb*

    Been there, done that... As a kid, I used to live near Lahti and its LW station with a 200 kW transmitter. Some 15 km away, you could still drive a small speaker directly from a crystal receiver.

    Sadly, the station was closed in 1993, but the 150 m antenna towers built in 1927 are still there. Under them, a fluorescent light tube would light up by itself Big Smile

    In aviation we still routinely use these LW stations, with ours being based in Stockholm. They can be accessed anywhere in the world and we can even have a telephone conversation with say our operations departments whilst enroute. Normally when out of touch on VHF, if we need to be contacted we have whats called SELCAL. You check in before going off to the Canaries for example with Shannon Radio(LW), and if they need you they can selectively call(SEL CAL) you with some chimes and lights alerts on the flight deck. 

    We use the airframe as the transmitter, and have to tune it in before transmitting!

    A Beovision 10-40 in black and red fret on order, Beo4, Beo6, many A8's, a pair of white and yellow Form 2's, Beocom 4, 28 inch Avant RF DVD, Apple TV and a wife that loves this stuff as much as i do!
