The Lahti Radio Station History exhibition reveals what the Lahti long wave station is and why the decision was originally made to build it in Lahti.  

The red and white radio towers that characterise the silhouette of the city tell us an interesting story from the early years of Lahti. Building the 150-metre-high towers in the 1920s required a great deal of effort from a small town. The long wave station was built because it was necessary to be able to reach all Finns with regular national radio broadcasts. The exhibition is on the first floor of Mastola. 

The Radio Amateur Station OH3R is also located on the same floor. Radio amateurs of Lahti are present at the museum every Sunday and during events to speak to visitors about their activities. In addition, you can try making your own TV show in the Chromakey studio.
