Vatican Radio has started to dismantle the transmitting station it had on Italian territory at a place called Santa di Maria di Galeria, northwest of Rome. The MF antenna Vatican which used to operate on 1530 kHz consisted of four towers. each surrounded by a cage of six ropes. The design gave a coverage of fade free groundwave propagation for up to 100 km from the Vatican site. Further signs that DRM as a technology is not going to fly.
