European VHF sound broadcasting turns 65

A piece of technological history was written 65 years ago on February 28. Europe’s first VHF FM transmitter made its on-air debut after being developed and built by Rohde & Schwarz in record time. This pioneering achievement not only convinced German radio listeners of the superior quality of FM radio. It soon persuaded the international public and launched the rapid expansion of FM technology around the globe. It was the first of many generations of transmitters from Rohde & Schwarz. In this issue, we present the culmination of this development. Analog broadcasting delivers a convincing grand finale with the new R&S®THR9 FM transmitters for VHF band II.
