Interesting Facts/Records (in own words): Centre de Transmission de la Marine de Rosnay is the most important facility of the French Navy to transmit signals to submerged submarines. The transmissions, which take place in the VLF-range ( frequency below 30 kHZ) have the callsign "HWU". They can be received ( NOT DECODED!!!) by a PC equipped with a soundcard, a FFT-software and a coil connected to the soundcard entrance.

The masts of this transmitter are 350 metres tall. They are beside the masts of Allouis longwave transmitter the tallest structures in France!

he station covers a very large area, look on http://www.wikimapia.org/#lat=46.71259&lon=1.24609&z=15&l=5&m=a&v=2

As the facility is of great military importance, there are only few information available. In many lists of VLF-transmitters, the facility is listed for Le Blanc.
