Thank you for the reports!
Radio Blackstone was for the first time on 6040 kHz with an official broadcast.
Antenna adaptations was not perfect for the frequency and some HF feedback was created but I could correct that during the transmission.
Antenna height was only 7 m and the both legs of the inverted V are at the end only 1 m from the ground.
Part of the HF goes in the ground unfortunatelly.
Output power of the old Telefunken transmitter was approximatelly 200 watts of carrier.
Audio optimod was by Orban.
