GERMANY VOA Munich Relay 1197 kHz QSL

The Munich Relay station began broadcasting VOA programmes in December 1946. The United States International Broadcasting Bureau (IBB) closed down the station on the 27th March 2005.

The four 120 metre transmitter masts, in the foreground at Ismaning, were used for the VOA Munich relay (Photograph with kind permission from Walter Brummer. Walter's interesting and comprehensive radio website includes many fascinating historical transmitter / antenna mast photographs and is well worth a visit).
