Daniel-From-Poland thanks for the info about Polish radio. I did not know there were broadcast stations operating at 225 Khz. I went to my on-line SDR and tuned in one near Warsaw and found some neat music earlier today (2 PM EST), now it is just talk in Polish (I assume).
EDIT: I looked it up: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solec_Kuj ... ransmitter

It was 1998, my bad.

It's a very complicated problem, hard to explain, especially when I'm a bit linguistically limited. As I wrote, Polish radio is badly organized, and the legal regulations regarding radio are terrible.

A lot was wasted at that time. From 1989 practically everything that is possible is liquidated, razed to the ground, or sold to foreign capital. The fact that even a 20-year-old broadcasting center was closed is only a very small example. Interestingly, the mast "rusted" until 2014. In 2014 it was blown up.

It seems to me that Poland wanted to be more modern than the USA by then :) Poland already in 1998 wanted to be more modern than most of the world in 2020 is :) Eh, how not to be so ironic? It was a sudden, unannounced, even partially illegal decision. The main reasons are the National public broadcaster willingness to reduce costs(and the transmitters were tube) In addition, allegedly, the interest in AM medium waves among the audience was too low. More regoristic (crazy) standards for electromagnetic radiation have also been invented.
So there was no point in transmitting any more, since such a reduction in power by the transmitters was necessary.

At that time, the Talking radio format was very unfashionable.
Before 1990, there were no private broadcasters, then private broadcasters started broadcasting - Only on FM.

The most painful thing is that it has not been possible to create local private medium-wave radio programs. Many radio amateurs dream about it, but are often ridiculed ... The fact is that now it is too late for it, Poles have forgotten what AM medium waves are, radio culture has collapsed, and technical knowledge has collapsed. Even if there was a shadow of hope for some AM radio programs, this sick law will quickly cool down all intentions.

Unfortunately, even on FM it's hard to find local radio programs. Almost the entire radio market belongs to cheesy, commercial, private nationwide networks. The National Public broadcaster are past their glory days, although Public Radio is still better than commercial broadcasters. Unfortunately, public radio is losing audience. Poles probably really love trash and commerce...

Yeah! Yes, this is our true radio pearl, long wave radio pearl.

225 kHz is our little pride :) It's good that it still transmitting. We have been broadcasting on our national frequency since 30s.

It has always been there Polish Radio 1. Before, this radio program was much better

It was on longwave (until 1988 it was exactly 227 kHz) that a great radio transmitter with a power of 2000 KW and a ERP power of 3000 KW, broadcasted with the highest radio mast in the history of the world.

It was not only the tallest radio tower in the history, but also the tallest building in the history of the world!

It was only Burj Khalifa hotel that broke our record in 2008. Until 2008 It was Poland that occupied a place in the Guinness Book of Records. Unfortunately, in 1991, the tallest radio mast became the longest...

The signal from this transmitter was amazing. It happened that it was on the US East Coast or in New Zealand. During the daytime hours, for example, the Signal was available for reception in Saudi Arabia. The program was received in very remote parts of the Soviet Union, even in Vladivostok

In addition, it had a fantastic sound. Zero audio processors. Zero saving - Pure Extravagance and Profligacy of Socialist Poland :) Such problems were not taken into account. There was supposed to be a good radio transmitter, that's it! It was for the thirtieth anniversary of Socjalist Poland - Polish People’s Republic.

I enjoy your interest into my stories

Reel tape, best from 1975, longwave monster.
Enjoy!

Ps. I live 65 miles from the contemporary transmitter :)

I think you'll enjoy this if you want to modify your Talking House AM Transmitter. This is the real deal: https://youtu.be/7mSZn5cPX5E

This guy is amazing. When the topic of modifying this transmitter was already abandoned, he did something so innovative.

It is a little more advanced upgrading, but someday I will think about making this modification.
On the other hand, my Talking house sounds really nice. Radio filters won't let you hear much more than that anyway.

The improvement in transmitting from the indoor antenna is very interesting, although I will never use the indoor antenna myself.

Ps. Now I can see that this "guy" is probably you. :) Congratulations!

Pps. I got a 4/5 signal while receiving the transmitter from 1650 ft. on my Grunding Yacht boy 400pe and Tecsun an-200 antenna.
