Does anyone know whether those two large radio masts are still in operation (the ones near Lincoln Road) and what is broadcast from them? Just curious!

I would assume its an AM tower for Radio NZ (Formerly NZBC)

Henderson is one of the primary AM transmitter sites in NZ, its pretty much the king in Auckland, not too sure of the current capability but I believe Mr White has managed to take the wold record for the number of Tx's on one mast at Henderson.
