The latest from reliable sources: Transmissions of Country Radio on 639 kHz are expected to start in September. Still under negotiation is the power level, but it will under no circumstances be more than 50 kW, rather less.
The contract runs until yearend 2026. Continuing beyond this date requires a replacement of the guy ropes on the two 355 metres tall masts. Offices who stated that they consider the facility as critical infrastructure are expected to provide/secure funding for this expensive maintenance. Else it will be curtains and as precaution an application for the demolition of the antenna will indeed be filed.
