The T-15, T-16 and T-17 transmitters provided "special" services.
They were used to "spoof" enemy direction finders by rebroadcasting
BCB stations, to broadcast propaganda messages to limited areas,
to provide a D.F. signal for allied air or sea formations
and also more mundane missions like contacting ships or
maritime shore stations that had only medium-wave capability.
They're difficult to find and I'm always interested in them.

 Thanks and best regards,
