Long wave station in Kalundborg (DK) to be closed
Long wave station in Kalundborg, Denmark to be closed – medium wave will continue.
Initially DR (Danish Broadcasting Corporation) wanted to close down both the medium wave and the long wave transmitters in Kalundborg operating on 243 and 1062 kHz by the end of 2006. But the Danish Ministry of Culture has decided that DR must continue using medium wave till at least December 31 2010. It is however uncertain which programmes will be carried on 1062 in the future. Director of DR Radio, Leif Lønsmann, says to radionyt.com, that DR is going to air navigational warnings, weather forecasts and possibly newscasts on medium wave – but no final decision on this has been taken yet.
The switch off of the long wave station [243 kHz] in Kalundborg is expected sometime during the spring of 2007.
