Rádio Renascença leaves AM, enters Rádio Sim
There was a change in the Portuguese radio: Rádio Renascença left the medium waves, having been repalced by new channel named Rádio Sim. Renascença, the Portuguese Catholic radio group, has just created a new channel, called Rádio Sim. It is targeted to the elder listeners and plays music from the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s. It is already “on air” and uses the MW frequencies that Rádio Renascença was using until now, besides some FM frequencies. So, from now on, the “flagship” channel of the group, Rádio Renascença, will be absent from the medium waves.
The MW frequencies that are now used by Rádio Sim are the following:
576 kHz – Braga;
594 kHz – Muge;
891 kHz – Vilamoura;
927 kHz – Évora;
963 kHz – Seixal;
981 kHz – Bragança (Braganza in English), Coimbra, Guarda and Vila Real;
1251 kHz – Castelo Branco, Chaves, Porto (Oporto in English) and Viseu.
