The End of Swiss Mediumwave

Switzerland’s last mediumwave transmitter has closed down. The 600 kW station at Sottens near Lausanne went silent at midnight on December 5th, 2010. This followed the closure of the German-Swiss MW station at Beromuenster and the Italian-Swiss station at Monte Ceneri / Monte Cima in 2008.


The Two Bobs got together on Skype to mark the sad event, which leaves Switzerland with no RF voice to the outside world.
