Shortwave Radio History: 50 years of transmitting at BBC Woofferton

Click here to download your copy.

Thanks to the efforts of a dedicated radio historian and author, Jeff Cant, you can download and read an excellent history of the first fifty years of the BBC’s Woofferton transmission station. Cant began his history as an internal document to the station; he later finished it in his retirement. I wish every shortwave transmitter station had such a well-documented history providing a perspective on the station’s broadcasting. We owe Mr. Cant a profound debt of gratitude.

A special thanks to Jonathan Marks for finding and sharing this great bit of radio history.

Should the link to the PDF above ever become inactive, I’ve placedĀ an archive copy available for download on the SWLing Post server.
