Solec Kujawski radio transmitter
|Solec Kujawski radio transmitter|
The Longwave transmitter Solec Kujawski is a longwave broadcasting facility of the Polish Radio for the AM-LW (long wave) 225 kHz frequency/1333 meters wavelength. Its construction was necessary after the collapse of the Warsaw radio mast on August 8, 1991 and the resistance of the local population to its reconstruction.
The transmitter was built in 1998/99 on a former military area near Solec Kujawski. The transmitter in this facility has a power of 1200 kilowatts (used 1000 kW) and is equipped with MOSFET amplifiers. The carrier frequency is, as in earlier days in the transmitter Konstantynow, generated by an atomic clock.
It uses a directional aerial, consisting of a 330 metres (1,080 ft) high and a 289 metres (948 ft) high guyed grounded mast 330 metres apart. The taller mast is Poland's eighth highest structure.
Furthermore, there is a freestanding lattice tower close to the station building that is used for directional radio links, which serve among others for passing the program to the station.
