Sao Tome 1530 tower collapsed

** SAO TOME. The northeast tower of the 600 kW São Tomé 1530 IBB/BBG medium wave relay has collapsed. The station is now operating non-direxionally on the remaining tower. The pattern was a wide-spaced two-tower array, with two major lobes, one more or less northerly, the other northeastward. So it is not clear whether this would diminish or increase its signal toward North America, where it has occasionally been DXed, around sign-on *0258 UT (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
