Now this is specifically talking about 198 Mhz longwave, the big BBC radio 4 transmitter at Droitwich which has been there almost since the dawn of radio.

Other AM transmitters in the UK are on medium wave and are slightly more modern.

I think 198 will go soon in the UK . It costs a fortune to run. Even the medium wave channels must be on borrowed time.
