    We could be forgiven for hoping that RTE are doing the right thing. AM transmitters are fiendishly inefficient, especially one as old as the Tullamore rig. I think they’re running it at 300kW carrier power in daytime and I believe it eats up somehting like half a million units of electricity every hour. If they can save all that power it will ease pressure on the national grid and hopefully reduce CO2 emissions by a certain amount, however small.
