The equipment in use here at TOR-Radio is fairly basic. We make good use of ex-marine radio transcievers
and transmitters. SKANTI TRP series are very useful. The best are 750 and 400 watt versions. BUT the 250w
is also a good unit. The original valve based transmitters are still used, but later FET based units are far
more efficient, and make running from batteries or generators easier! And save electricity / fuel-costs too.

early in 2020 the last of the SKANTI HF/SSB units and it's aerial-tuner failed, destroying both! And the attack
on the Kent mediumwave site et the end of Feb 2020 destroyed the 80watt transmitter and link. So there has been a
panic to get the mediumwave and the 6995kHz USB running again.

Our aerial systems often get damaged in high winds!, but vandals armed with clubs and metal-bars is getting nasty!
The studio is a shared facility also used for recording / editing for a soundscapes website, and used by us when
not being used. We can often only make use of this at weekends. We are looking to fund our own more permanant
studio and links sites to allow more regular broadcasts, and cover a greater area.
