120 kW Soviet transmitters:

Extract from BC-DX 420:
Some time ago I received an extract from one of your nxletters where Kai Ludwig commented on the Romanian 120 kW txers that this power level reminded him of Chinese equipment.
Well, this unusual level originally is a Soviet invention. The first 120 kW txer was the famed RV-96 in Moscow, which started testing in Nov 1937. It consisted of two parallel 60 kW units and was designed by Aleksandr Mints, the father of Soviet high power bcing. Apparently it was produced by the Komintern factory, which from the 60's onwards brought the USSR to the top of the power league with txers of up to 2500 kW.
RV-96 was moved to Sverdlovsk (Yekaterinburg) upon the Nazi attack on the USSR, but apparently was moved back to Moscow after the war. Two more txers of the same model were built in Irkutsk and Komsomolsk, respectively. During and after WWII three 60 kW units were built in St. Petersburg.
The oldest (oldest judging from the antenna tower designs) SW stn in the Moscow area, Noginsk, was using 120 kW txers into the early 90s. The Lesnoy stn also had 120 kW txers. The known 120 kW unit was part of a group of seven txers with the same operating characteristics, and most likely the whole group consisted of 120 kW units built in the early 50's. These disappeared in the late 80's and were replaced by additional 250 kW units. The inside and outside of the Lesnoy stn is featured on the RNW first CIS QSL card from 1993. The txer shown, RV-193, disappeared early in 1993, and may have been the last one ot the 120 kW group.
The old Irkutsk txers went off the air around 1974 when the new Angarsk super power site was in full operation. There were two FS units at the old site and an educated guess is that one was the 120 kW unit from around 1940. The second one could have been of a similar type. In the early 90's
Khabarovsk still had four 120 kW units in operation. The fate of the 120 kW unit built at Komsomolsk is not known.
I would guess that the Russian 120 kW design was exported to China before links were cut off in 1956. It is difficult to determine how many 120 kW txers are actually operating in China, since the Chinese are not very open about their real facilities. Anyhow, it appears that many of their oldest
txers are of this kind, with listings for the Beijing, Baoding, Xi'an and Kunming sites. (Olle Alm-SWE, Jul 11,1999)
