The radio station is located in the city Berdsk, on a plot of more than 3 hectares of land on the shore of the picturesque bay of the Ob reservoir, we call it a Siberian sea. It’s spread over 150 kilometers in length to the south and more than 20 kilometers wide .
The antennas are located on the coast of the peninsula in such a way that, in any direction the signal spreads over the water surface. Here, under the antennas we build a resort Holiday Village “Staraya pristan.” This name is taken from historical sources. In earlier times, this place was the estate of merchant Gorokhov, who on the Ob river brought grain and grinds it into flour at the mill, which was just at the point where now is a 3 elements yagi antenna for 80ti meters band.
Holiday Village consists of several comfortable cottages, warm cabins, beach pavilions, playgrounds and places of active recreation. And in the cafe, located at the village you can celebrate any event or just have a delicious meal with friends.
