747 AM off air due to icy weather

Regrettably the snow caused problems with our antenna on Sunday afternoon and 747 kHz is off air. We expect that it takes some time to get on air again.

Initially the transmitter went off air because the snow and ice caused an imbalance in the antenna loading of the transmitter. Later we incurred some damage to the installation.

Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven

MAP MDDW

400 000 people are visiting Eindhoven for the increasingly popular Dutch Design Week (DDW).

With exhibitions, workshops, food events, music and so much more, at 110 locations around the city, there is sure to be something for everyone. All the choices may be a bit overwhelming, so included are design routes. Various experts have, at the request of the DDW, put together theme-based design routes.

Real Body Worlds

De techniek van het menselijk lichaam, zo zou je er naar kunnen kijken: hoe kunnen we bewegen? Wat ziet een hartchirurg tijdens een operatie? Maar het is ook een tentoonstelling waar theologen van onder de indruk zijn.

Binnenkort in Eindhoven onder de naam Real Human Bodies Exhibition Eindhoven, en dus ging Studio Brainport (Studio040, Euregio Radio, Radio 4 Brainport) op zoek in het archief van Leon Balmaekers.

The TU Eindhoven soccer robot team will be defending its world title from 27 to 30 July at the RoboCup in Nagoya, Japan.

Yet this is not only about games and sports competition, it is also pushing the frontiers of innovation in autonomous driving and medical surgery.
Radio4Brainport interviews a big fan of the Robocup and the Tech United team from Eindhoven: Prof. Maarten Steinbuch.

RoboCup is the world championschip for intelligent robots in different disciplines, with almost 4000 participants from 40 countries. If Tech United gets to the final, it will be the tenth time in a row. And if the fully autonomous Eindhoven soccer robots win, it will be their fourth world title. In the ‘help-at-home’ category, the TU/e team hopes its robots will be able to bring home a first world title after second and third places at previous tournaments.
