As people prepared themselves to listen to its last transmission, other people started a resistance movement. Interest to preserve the station increased and Grimeton Radio was soon listed as a national industrial monument. The station buildings, the Alexanderson alternator and the multiple tuned antenna system will be kept in working order. The next mission is to get the unique SAQ listed as a UNESCO World Heritage.
Point of contact is the SAQ web site with colour photos, tentative transmission schedules and information for those who wish to pay a visit to the station. The Varberg Tourism web site will inform on the cultural and other amenities of the town of Varberg. See links below.
SAQ will be open for HF 04 participants on Saturday, August 14, between 13:00 and 15:00 Swedish local time and will transmit on dummy load at 14:00 (12:00 UTC). Refreshments will be available.
There will be no group travel, nor group tickets. This decision is based on previous HF 01 experience of not being able to synchronise wishes. Instead we suggest a few ways of travel. Please choose a route below according to your return travel from Gotland by ferry or by air. Also refer to our Travel info page.
