Confusion & Uncertainty ??

Shortwavesites  The Yahoo Group where DXers investigate transmitter sites

WANTED: Clarification as to the correct shortwave transmitter sites
 
Hi folks. Welcome to the web page where we detail transmitter sites that we have discovered, but are uncertain as to their use or purpose. The objective of this page is to determine, which if any of these sites are used for broadcast-band shortwave broadcasting. In attempting to achieve this goal we provide what information we have available regarding particular sites & hope that someone discovers this website who can contribute some valuable information for both our group & the global shortwave community. 
 
Our email address is provided at the bottom of this page as is our home address.

We look forward to hearing from you.

ISRAEL Yavne 

What are these antennas at the site of KOL Israel at these Google Earth coordinates? 31°53'55.32"N  34°45'34.47"E    Is it perhaps antennas for:  Galei Zahal (Israel Defence Forces Radio)?????? (WB)

SAUDI ARABIA  Jeddah  Broadcasting Service of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

Whilst we believe we have discovered the correct site for this station  there are other similar transmitter sites found at the following locations in the Jeddah region: 21 25 26N 39 12 03E but no SW antennas/mast seen. Also suspected to be located at: 21 07 35.16N 39 13 51.40E but distance between masts make SW usage unlikely for the broadcaster. Another site location is: 21 14 33N 39 09 36E - "it was supposed to be the MW site for 1512 and 648 kHz" - directional. One pair of masts at this site could be for HF to the west of the building? Confusion confusion.......

SAUDI ARABIA  Hail

6 SW curtains at 139 / 319 degrees located at: 27 28 02N, 41 43 38E. What is this transmitter site?

TDP list mentions some Continental TXers delivered in 1983.

Old WWDXC Clandestine list of 1975 gives.
