Danmarks Radio on 1062 kHz reduces broadcast time

Starting 15 February there will be a strong reduction of airtime on the 250 kW transmitter in Kalundborg operating on 1062 kHz. This is the new schedule in UTC: 0445-0507, 0730-0807, 1045-1130, 1645-1716, 2145-2205. I believe that the transmitter will be switched on some 5 minutes prior to these s/on times and may also stay on the air a couple of minutes after official s/off times. The programmes to be carried are:

* 0445-0451: Weather forecast
* 0451-0500: // DR P4
* 0500-0507: News (// DR P4)
* 0730-0740: Gymnastics
* 0740-0745: Interval signal
* 0745-0800: Weather forecast
* 0800-0807: News (// DR P4)
* 1045-1100: Weather forecast
* 1100-1130: News (// DR P1 and DR P4)
* 1645-1700: Weather forecast
* 1700-1716: Navigational warnings
* 2145-2200: Weather forecast
* 2200-2205: News (// DR P4)

On 14 February 2007 at 2330 UTC the 300 kW transmitter in Kalundborg operating on 243 kHz will be switched off for the last time. The reason for the closure of 243 kHz and the reduced schedule on 1062 kHz is the fact that hardly anyone in Denmark listen to LW and MW – and due to the high cost of running the transmitters.

    Yep, it’s those pesky angle brackets. Be warned, folks. Your message will be truncated if you use… (and if my theory is correct, they will not appear!) …
