    Its in the Chernobyl exclusion zone so its not like visiting mount rushmore but yes it is possible to be a tourist there with the right connections.

    Luckily it's long been shut down, and from the videos I've seen of it it's in no shape to ever transmit QRM again.

    And yet, with the proliferation of all the new sources of QRN in our modern society, maybe not so bad after all ?

    Yes, with "Pride of China" electronics proliferating everywhere, you'd likely be lucky to hear the woodpecker if it were still operating today.

    Making an irradiated exclusion zone a "heritage site" seems a convenient rebranding to me.
