Inner Mongolia launches dozens of AM transmitters
provincial broadcaster Radio Inner Mongolia (Nei
Menggu People's Broadcasting Station) has launched
over 50 new AM transmitters in 2012-2013. Many of
the new transmitters are part of the Rural and Pastoral
Service, also known as "The Voice of Green
Field" (Luye zhi sheng), which was founded
in 2008. The main transmitters of this network are
operating on 675 AM and 91.9 FM in the provincial
capital Hohhot. The majority of the new transmitters
are on 666, 990 and 1413 kHz, each of which has
transmitters in several locations across the province.
Half Size Dual Active Delta
half size active dual flag array antenna requires
only 30 meters of linear space, and so it is an
excellent choice for MW DXers with limited space
for antennas, says Dallas Lankford in his article.
Although small compared to previous high performance
MW antenna arrays, it is a state of the art MW receiving
antenna array, primarily because it uses true active
delta flag antenna elements.
