There will be no Alexanderson Day over-the-air VLF transmission on July 2 from SAQ, the Alexanderson alternator station in Sweden. SAQ periodically schedules transmissions with the nearly century-old behemoth that operates on 17.2 kHz from the World Heritage Grimeton Radio Station. SAQ said the event was cancelled due to ongoing maintenance work at the site.
The station will still observe Alexanderson Day with activities that include two startups of the Alexanderson alternator and a “local” transmission. These events will be streamed via YouTube. The site will be open to visitors.
