Studio 2 Reconstruction

In 1996 the much-aged and heavily-worn equipment in studio 2 of the radio station was replaced by a brand new mixer (Dateq BCS) and accompanying furniture.

This is a job to which a large part of the volunteers of that time contributes; it was a real reconstruction project.

To make it possible to fit the new furniture, studio 2 and 3 were merged together, and even then the furniture didn't fit in one piece in this room. Below some photos.
