Default WRMI Shortwave Transmitter Tour

WRMI is one of the SW broadcast stations I frequent most every evening-among my favorites. I came across a video touring their massive transmitter site. 22 separate arrays on one square mile-1.4 million watts total.
I thought some here would enjoy this.

Thanks for sharing this. So that's where Family Radio broadcasted from. I wonder who their customers are now. They mentioned that they serve a lot of Spanish stations, I'm curious who they are.

What I like is they play a ton of the music I grew up on and I tune them in at bedtime on the old DX160. Nice way to fall to sleep.

Too much introduction and jibber-jabber before anything interesting is shown.

This video shows some amazing stuff like those huge transformers on pallets that likely weigh 5-700lbs!
