Clarkstown radio transmitter

The Clarkstown radio transmitter is a longwave radio transmitter in County Meath, Ireland. It is located some 3.5 km east of the village of Summerhill, in a field south of the R156 regional road at Clarkstown. Constructed in 1988 for the transmission of Atlantic 252 on 252 kHz, it uses one 248-metre-high guyed steel framework mast with triangular cross section, insulated against ground; the original transmitters were two 300 kilowatt Continental Solid State transmitters built by Varian Associates of Dallas. These were replaced in 2007 by a single 300 kilowatt Transradio TRAM 300L transmitter; the ground around the mast and the entire transmission site bed are lined with copper for conductivity. The site has an ITU-cleared transmission power of 500 kW by day and 100 kW at night but is now only capable of operating at 300 kW by day and 100 kW at night. Atlantic 252 ceased operations on 20 December 2001 and the transmitter was taken over by RTÉ Networks Limited, it is now used for the AM version of RTÉ Radio 1 on 252 kHz, has been the sole source of RTÉ Radio 1 on AM since 24 March 2008, when the medium wave Tullamore transmitter on 567 kHz was taken off air.

In 2007, the transmitter was carrying a Digital Radio Mondiale multiplex overnight, featuring Radio 1, RTÉ Digital Radio Sport, RTÉ Digital Radio News and the World Radio Network, before reverting to AM transmission for the daytime. DRM tests have since ceased, AM transmissions now operate full-time once again. On 24 September 2014, RTÉ announced that broadcasting of RTÉ Radio 1 on 252 kHz will cease on 27 October 2014. Following representations from Irish listeners in the UK and others that date has now been postponed at least until 2021. 1988 - Construction of Clarkstown Transmitter by Radio Tara 1989 - Launch of Atlantic 252 on 1 September 1989, pop station aimed at UK and Irish market 2001 - Closure of Atlantic 252, 20 December 2001 2002 - Launch of TEAMtalk 252 aimed at UK and Irish market 2002 - TEAMtalk 252 ceased broadcasting on 30 June 2002 2002 - RTÉ take over the running of the Clarkstown Transmitter following demise of TEAMtalk 2004 - Official launch of RTÉ Radio 1 on Long Wave 252, January 2004 2004 - While the Tullamore transmitter was offline for maintenance Clarkstown provided Radio 1's AM service 2007 - Major upgrade of Transmitter 2007 - RTÉ run DRM tests, in parallel with Analogue AM service 2008 - 24 March, Closure of RTÉ Medium Wave service leaving 252 Long Wave as the only AM Broadcast by RTÉ, services which were on Medium Wave transferred to Long Wave.

Its grounds can be accessed on public footpaths; the former monastery was established in 1440, was called Gjesingholm from 1440 til 1674.

A son of an owner, Vilhelm Adolf had his older brother, Count Ditlev Christian, murdered on a hunt on 1 March 1674. After this the estate was turned over to the throne. On 12 April 1732, King Christian VI reestablished Løvenholm as a countship for Frederik Christian Danneskiold-Samsøe, who just 10 years on 17 August 1742 obtained permission from the king to cancel the countship.

At the same time he sold Løvenholm to Count Ulrik Adolph Danneskiold-Samsøe. Thereafter the estate changed hands, in 1827 the State took it over due to pending taxes. In 1831 it was returned to private ownership.

Kingsley, Pennsylvania

Kingsley is in Harford Township, Susquehanna County, United States. Kingsley was named after Revolutionary War veteran Rufus Kingsley, the first settler in the area. Kingsley is located in the Endless Mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania, it is in rural Susquehanna County. The population in 1900 was 75, the current population is about 50; the town itself is small but the outskirts extend up to ten miles outside the actual town. The population in the outskirts of the town is over two hundred. Kingsley is located about a half-hour from the cities of Binghamton, New York and Scranton, Pennsylvania. Most of the residents have lived in the town their whole lives. Kingsley is served by area codes 570 and 272. In 1809, a man named Rufus Kingsley, his wife Lucinda, their four children John, Nancy and Lucretia moved from Windham, Connecticut to what was Harford Township. Rufus was born in Windham, Connecticut on February 1, 1763, he fought in the Battle of Bunker Hill, just outside Boston, at the age of thirteen as a drummer boy.

He was one of three drummer boys in the battle. He married Lucinda Cutler on October 12, 1786, he moved to present day Kingsley in 1809, where he built a house. His home still so does a maple tree that he and his family planted, he died on May 1846 at the age of eighty-three. His wife died three days later, they are both buried in the Universalist Cemetery in Brooklyn, Pennsylvania because they attend the Universalist church all their lives. John, Rufus's son, lived in town his whole life, he married Edith Chase. He and Edith had at least one daughter, he built a “mansion” next to his father's home. His house burnt. John and his wife are buried in the Harford Cemetery, Pennsylvania. John had at least one daughter named Ellen, she married another town resident Manning Perigo. She and Manning had at least two children named Edith. Nancy and Lucretia, Rufus's daughters, moved out of town, they both, at different points in time, taught at a school in Brooklyn. Not much is known about Rufus's other children.

Technically, Rufus was not the first person to settle in the area. In 1793, a free African American, Prince Perkins, his wife Judith, son William, daughter Phebe moved to a place just outside the current town of Kingsley, from Connecticut. There is no record as to whether or not he was a slave, but if he had been, he was free according to the laws of Connecticut, which abolished slavery in 1780. Perkins fought in the Revolutionary War, his daughter, Phebe Perkins, married Revolutionary War veteran, Bristol Budd Sampson, a comrade and close friend of Perkins' who served with him in the 4th Connecticut of the Continental Army and endured the long winter at Valley Forge. Prince Perkins' son William Perkins inherited his property and upon William's death, it passed to William's widow, Melinda Perkins who upon her death, bequeathed it to their daughter, Angeline Perkins Dennis. Angeline and her husband Henry W. Dennis expanded the property in the mid-19th century and it has been known as the Dennis Farm since.

Both Prince Perkins and Bristol Budd Sampson and members of their families are buried in the Perkins-Dennis Cemetery on the Dennis farm. The farm has remained in the stewardship of the Dennis family to the present day and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Bristol Budd Sampson moved to Kingsley himself. Bristol was an African American who served in the Revolutionary War and is said to have been an attendant to General George Washington, he married Phebe Perkins and they had several children. Sampson lost his sight. In 1820, with the help of his neighbors, he applied for a pension based on his service in the Revolutionary War, he was awarded a pension of ninety-six dollars a year. Phebe Perkins Sampson continued to receive his pension after his death, she received a land grant after which and one of their daughters left Pennsylvania. Before they left, they sold the Sampson property to William Perkins' widow; the land where the Perkins-Dennis family settled is now the Dennis Farm Charitable Land Trust and was created by Denise Dennis and the Dennis family, direct descendants of Prince Perkins.

It was established in 2001 for the historical preservation of the farmhouse, stone fences, cemetery on the Dennis Farm where Bristol Budd Sampson and Prince Perkins are buried. The cemetery contains forty others including members of the Perkins Dennis family and a black Civil War veteran. During the spring and summers of 2008 and 2009, students from the State University of New York at Binghamton uncovered thousands of artifacts during archaeological research on the property, on behalf of the Dennis Farm Charitable Land Trust; the history of the Prince Perkins family is documented in the Susquehanna County Historical Society and the Brooklyn, PA Historical Society. The town took the name Kingsley in 1886; the Delaware and Western Railroad track was built on present day Route 11 in about 1870. Trains would stop to fill their water tanks in town. In 1886, a group of townspeople decided, it cost $1,310 for the station to be built. The townspeople agreed that the station and the town needed a name, so they named it after Rufus Kingsley.

The railroad was moved in 1915 during the construction of the Summit Cut-off. Cut-off construction started in 1912 and ended in 1915; the Delaware and Western Railroad decided to reroute the tracks to reduce grades and to shorten the time betwee
