Netherlands AM update
Transmissions on 828 Khz from Heinenoord in Holland are resumed since early july. The frequency is owned by Arrow for its new station Arrow Talks. Until this station will start, the transmitter is temporarily used by “Caz“, a former FM station. Arrow bought Caz in june 2007 from SBS-media and started to use the CAZ-FM-netwok for Arrow Rock. Caz was since then on cable and internet only. Now Caz may use 828 temporarily until ArRow Talks will start. The 828 kHz transmitter has a power of 20 kW (daytime) and 5 kW (nighttime).

Arrow’s second frequency of 1035 kHz is to be used as a secondary outlet for Arrow Jazz FM, which is currently unable to cover its target area well enough. The 10-kilowatt transmitter will be located in Echt. 1224 kHz in Almere (40 kW day, 20 kW nights) has been awarded to Stichting Radika, which currently broadcasts on FM from Rotterdam under the name Radio Amor, but hasn’t disclosed its AM plans yet. The frequency of 1485 kHz (1 kW in Tilburg) has been awarded to Radio Marina, an oldies station. The frequency was advertised for a single transmitter in The Hague, but Radio Marina says it plans to operate two transmitters serving South Holland and Flevoland. Finally, 1557 kHz (1 kW in Amsterdam) was given to Stichting BKB3, which currently operates Magic FM in Amsterdam and Alkmaar. Information about the stations was published in English by Media Network blog on March 4-5.
