Trintelhaven comparison June 2005-2006

TRINTELHAVEN 2005-2006 !

In 2005 Big L Radio London aired from the transmitter site of Trintelhaven
in the Netherlands.

Transmissions seized after disagreements between the operator of the site
and Radio London.
Since then it is rumoured that Big L will return on 1395 Khz.

I won't discuss the possibilities of that. I just hope they will at some point.
I think they added an interesting being on the medium wave.
If they will return on 1395 or from the Trintelhaven is uncertain.

This is a neutral picture report of the current (june 2006) site with pics from
2005 for comparison.

Enjoy, Peter
