US AGM relays on mediumwave in Afghanistan after Sept 11 , 2021 ?  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, April 20 2021


AFGHANISTAN  Foreign mediumwave and FM stations in AFG.

German Army, the "Bundeswehr" has provided assistance in Afghanistan for
past 20 years. German media told these figures today:

The German taxpayer incurred costs in total of EUR 12.5 billion.

The German Army will soon leave the country on the Hindukush.

What will happen to the US AGM medium wave transmitters in Kabul and
Khost after September 11, 2021 ?

Can these - afterwards - still be used by the US AGM?

Are there any security problems due to the hostility of the local
Taliban organization actions?
