Netherlands slated to close NPO Radio 5


Mediumwave NPO Radio 5 will cease transmissions on September 1

On September 1, 2015 there will be closure of 747 kHz and 1251 kHz which have been carrying NPO Radio 5 and NPO Radio 5 Nostalgia.

I notice that there will be reduction in use of the sites at Flevoland and Emmaberg. I assume (please put me right here) that Flevoland will then continue to transmit 1008 kHz using the existing directional array?

The nature of mediumwave use in the Netherlands will change so that previous

NPO sites will be operated solely by private stations.
