Title: Preserving a Piece of VOA History: Collins 250 KW AM Transmitter
Post by: AE2EA on February 12, 2021, 06:49:52 PM
In 2007, the Voice of America ceased operations at the Delano Relay site in Central California. The site is destined to be bulldozed along with several relics of Collins Radio Company's Broadcast Communications Division. The Collins Collectors Association, with assistance from the Antique Wireless Association, hatched a plan to retrieve one of the Collins 821A-1 250 KW Shortwave Transmitters from the site and place it on display for all to see. This video presentation gives some history of VoA and the Delano site and follows the disassembly and relocation of Delano Relay DL-8.
