Irish RTE Long Wave Station Gets Two Year Extension

The Irish radio station RTE on 252 kHz is one of the few still operating on the long wave band in Europe.


Although it was scheduled to close in June of 2019, it has now been given a new lease of life with an upgrade to the transmission mast.

It will now stay in service for a minimum of two more years.

The Irish diaspora in Britain are some of the main users of the service and they had been lobbying for it to continue.
