The Motala longwave transmitter is a broadcasting station for longwave, established in 1927 in Motala, Sweden. Its aerial is of the T-type spun between two free standing steel framework towers, which still exist today. The transmitter was in service until 1962, when the new Orlunda longwave transmitter went in service. In 1991 the Swedish broadcasting company shut down its longwave transmitter. Nowadays the transmitter is an interesting technical museum, from which sometimes also transmissions with low power in the longwave range take place. These transmissions may not be received well from abroad.
