Technical Visit, Tuesday 24 March 2009
On the Tuesday afternoon of the conference there will be a Technical Tour to the big Radio Transmitter in Koenigs Wusterhausen sponsored by AMTA.
The famous ‘Funkerberg’ in Königs Wusterhausen is a historical museum showing the complete development from the ancient power transmitter, the transmitting station as far as to a large transmitting tower.
The first broadcasting activities in Königs Wusterhausen started in 1915 continued during the Third Empire, the German Democratic Republic (GDR) period and closed in 1995. The big radio station operated in the long-, medium- and short wave range. Beside the authentic demonstration of the broadcasting studio and the original technical instrumentation it is additionally possible for the visitors to experience the starting up of the 1000 HP Diesel engine used as emergency power supply. A short trailer can be seen on the homepage.
It has to be emphasized that the Technical Tour is sponsored by AMTA and
is free of charge for the attendees of the EuCAP 2009. Due to a limitation of 50 participants it is performed on the 'first come, first serve' basis.
