The Brookmans Park Radio Station, situated on the A1000 road between Potters Bar and Hatfield in Hertfordshire, played a crucial part in the history of broadcasting in Great Britain.

It was the first purpose-built twin transmitter station in the world capable of broadcasting two radio programs simultaneously when it was completed in October 1929.

It also played a part in the early development of television broadcasting. Today Brookmans Park is home to Global Teleports (UK) Teleport.

Licensed for Permanent Earth station (PES) and VSAT network (VSAT) with OFCOM, Global Teleports offers satellite coverage over the Atlantic and Indian oceans.
