LKB Bergen Kringkaster is the former NRK (Norsk Rikskringkasting) AM(LW/MW) broadcasting station for Bergen. Its QTH is near the village of Erdal on Askoey Island north of Bergen.
The Telefunken broadcasting transmitter of 20 kW was built in 1936 -1937 and is the only remaining Telefunken transmitter (complete) of this type in the world.
The Marconi transmitter of 1 kW is also from the mid-30s.

Their first signals were broadcast in 1937 from the Telefunken on 260, and from the Marconi transmitter on 355 kHz.

Bergen Kringkaster – Current broadcasting situation.

By | 18.12.2016|Categories: Kringkasting|0 Comments

Hello from Norway.

LKB houses two small narrowcast AM/FM stations in Western Norway, one AC Standards station with a «mid-Atlantic» format and the other runs Nostalgia. A beautiful music station stream will be added in the near future set for testing in the first half of 2017.

We hold Norwegian content and technical broadcast licenses and are located with a small studio at Bergen’s former AM(NRK) outlets LKB(Philips 10 kW) and LLE (Marconi 1 kW) near Erdal in Askøy municipality.

The site is intact except from the 10kW and the original T-antenna strung between two 150 metres masts which has been taken down. 20 metres of one of these is intact. For the moment we operate from a Comrod antenna, inverted «V»s, and longwires.

Most of the personnel are licensed radio amateurs. We also have much general broadcasting knowledge.

We have been on the air since 2012, improving and progressing a little year by year.
