The end of long-wave transmitters in Topolná.
České Radiokomunikace blows up the station to close the proceedings.
The Senate Defense and Security Committee called on the government to consider using the transmitters in an emergency.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Culture was deciding whether to declare the Topolná transmitter a monument.
All these beautiful people were taken aback and České Radiokomunikace blew up two 270-meter-high masts of the Topolná long-wave transmitter on July 28! Even the village and its Mayor was therefore not aware of the blasting, they also wanted to keep the station as a memorial.
It must be said that the simple replacement of the cables of the masts would have cost almost four million euros to the owner of the transmitter who is České radiokomunikace. What closes any discussion with the explosive.
At the beginning of the year, the Topolná transmitter in the Uherskohradišť region stopped broadcasting Czech longwave radio after 69 years. It is the eleventh tallest building in the Czech Republic.
