Radio France announces plans for longwave and mediumwave


Andy Sennitt writes in the PCJ Facebook group: Radio France is joining many other public broadcasters in Europe and will end all broadcasts on longwave and mediumwave. This will save 13 million euros annually. 

Last week the details were announced: At the end of this year, the two mediumwave transmitters of France Bleu (864 kHz and 1278 kHz) and the remaining nine mediumwave transmitters of France Info (603, 711, 1206, 1242, 1377, 1404, 1494 and 1557 kHz) will be silenced. Last year, three high power stations of France Info were already closed.

At the end of 2016. France-Inter will disappear from the longwave frequency 162 kHz. (Radio.NL via DX-Clusive 10/2015)
