Radio Prague closes the Litomysl site facility

From Radio Prague’s Mailbox programme broadcast yesterday:

Armin Gerstberger from the United States asked this question among others: “I was wondering what will happen to your shortwave transmission facility in Litomysl after 1/31/2011. Will it be maintained for future use by Cesky rozhlas, rented out or sold off?”

Radio Prague answered: The Litomysl transmitter has been closed down and the staff laid off. As for now, it is unclear whether the facility will be dismantled or whether it will be preserved for potential future operation.
