VRT plans to close nearly all of its mediumwave transmitters
The Flemish Government has accepted the proposal of the Flemish Radio and Television (VRT) in Belgium to close its analogue mediumwave broadcasts on 540, 1188 and 1512 kHz. That will leave VRT with just one mediumwave frequency, 927 kHz. The decision has been forwarded to the Council of State.
Andy Sennitt comments: The decision to discontinue 1512 kHz will affect expats in neighbouring countries who use this frequency to listen to Radio Vlaanderen Internationaal. RNW listeners will recall that we also used this transmitter for our English service in the late evening for a number of years.
