Yesterday I was in Monte Carlo, and I have got news from Radio Monaco; the station is on the air since July 12th. It’s the former MC One. The station is now under control of Monaco Government (some parts only). So the name is Radio Monaco, http://www.radio-monaco.com Actually it’s the same kind of programme as MC One. The station will start regular programmes from September. Frequency still 98.2 MHz in Monaco Ville.
But in September/October (after agreement of French CSA) the station will change frequency from Mont Agel, to cover all the Côte d’Azur. The station will also be audible until Marseilles and the Provence, with relays (that needs agreement of France). Radio Monaco will be the official voice of the Principality. This tiny country has a lot of money, and it can run Radio Monaco without problems.
