RTÉ  reconsiders decision to close longwave station

RTÉ  is reconsidering closure of the longwave station, and notes that it is conducting a 'review' of its decision to close its long wave transmitter on 252 kHz. The article in the Irish Independent interprets that as meaning that the decision to close 252 has been 'ditched' but that conclusion may be too definitive. There is no commitment to increasing power on 252 or to moving to 261 to avoid interference from Algiers.
