Radio 1’s 252 transmitter off-air temporarily

RTÉ Radio 1 will not be broadcasting on its 252 Long Wave frequency for almost two weeks starting today.

The station will be unavailable from midday 27th June to 12:30pm on 7th July due to essential engineering work.

Transmitter operator, 2rn, says: “Our Summerhill transmitter will be subject to a complete outage from 12:00 on 27th June to 12:30 on 7th July 2017. This work will affect the Radio 1 LW 252kHz service from this transmitter.

“2rn apologise for any inconvenience caused by this necessary work.”

Radio 1 will continue to broadcast as normal across Ireland on FM and DAB.

    I listen to 252LW traveling in Ireland . Tuned-in Thursday 29 June to French possibly Algerian radio. Still off on Saturday so time to investigate. Will DAB be better in the car than LW ?. Is there a DAB LW car radio available , I also like 198 LW ?.
