Visit to Radio station SAQ at Grimeton, a UNESCO World Heritage Site

 

Visit to Radio station SAQ at Grimeton 1In 2004, Varberg Radio station SAQ at Grimeton, 55 minutes south of Göteborg, was put on the UNESCO world heritage List. It is the only remaining pre-electronic transmitter for transatlantic operation and is kept in perfect working order. On few occasions, such as at this EuCAP 2013 Technical Tour, the 80 year old 200 kW Alexandersson alternator will be started. The cooling water fountains, the clicking relays, the liquid variable resistors and the rumbling 50 ton alternator will recall the atmosphere of the 1920´s. The VLF (17.2 kHz) antenna system of the station consists of six 127 m high steel towers, standing in a row over a distance of 2.2 km. For more information, see http://www.grimeton.info/.
