Final broadcast for Finland's 558 kHz

The last medium wave transmitter of YLE, Helsinki 558 kHz, will sign off on December 31st. The station gave a short announcement about this at 1045 UT today. I'm not sure but they will probably give these local announcements during December daily, so now it's the last moment to observe Helsinki 558 if you wish to catch a local insert from this station. At the end of this local announcement the station plays a short
piece of YLE's interval tune. In all other times they relay Radio Peili or Radio Finland. (Vesa-Jussi Rinkinen-FIN, hcdx Dec 21)
