**Since 1974 two long waves transmitters
delivering a high frequency power of 1000 kw each and working in
parallel thru a connecting box deliver a power of 2000 kw to the
antennas. A third transmitter of same power installed in 1983 allows
to increase the power to 3000 kw.**

**A directing antenna consisting of three towers
300 meters high, allows to focus the radiating energy to the center
of France. This main antenna may be replaced by a spare tower of 330
meters, able to radiate a power of 2000 kw ; the switch from the main
to the spare antenna takes less than 30 seconds. The ground copper
network whose length is over 200 kilometers covers 370 acres. To
permit farming the copper network is buried at 32 inches. The radio
station stands in the middle of corn and lavender fields. Power is
provided by two high voltage wire of 150 and 220 kilovolts. Two
transformers of 5 megawatts furnish the energy to the transmitters.
The used energy is the same as a city of 5000 peophe ; furthermore a
generating set of 3300 horses power is available as well as another
spare line of 20 kilovolts.**
