All but one of the towers at Rampisham HF transmitting station were demolished on 18th August 2017. You can see a 1961 video of Rampisham on the Specific Tx Sites page (scroll down to Rampisham).  This section used to include links to more information about Rampisham, in two articles that appeared in Shortwave Magazine.  Unfortunately I have had to remove these links as they are now described by security software as "dangerous websites".  I have not been able to find the articles elsewhere, so if you can provide a suitable link please let me know.  (the original link was to www. pwpublishing. ltd. uk/swm/index.htm (remove spaces), but go there at your own risk!
