It is all covered in the book "The Secret Wireless War".


The transmitter site was at Crowborough, England.


As far as what was broadcast from it is supplied in great detail in the
book.

I never heard of it. Where in England or Scotland was it exactly? And
what was being broadcast on it until 1982?

Reading "The Secret Wireless War", I see that the Apidistra
transmitter was shut down for the final time in September of 1982.


I am very disappointed I was completely unaware of this transmitter at
that time, or the part it played during WWII.


While working for Timex Corp., I was in England & Scotland during 1982
and had an extended stay from September to December of 1982. At the
very least, on a weekend I might have been able to drive to the site
of that transmitter and seen it "in the flesh" before it was
dismantled and sold for scrap.
