New Irish station on 549 AM
The former Irish pirate transmitter Vision 549 in Monaghan, the Irish Republic,
(http://irishradio.tripod.com/archive2.htm). (http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Underground/8585/pir-irl.html) has sprung to life again, this time with a legal “RSL” type license, not same operator as before. Links: http://www.countryandirish.ie/ and http://www.bebo.com/hotcountry
Good test signal on 549 kHz(30 kW) detected on air just after 2100 UTC Wednesday 27th August.
QRM from DLF, unid, plus 2 different ? Russians had disappeared by then. First regular broadcast starts Friday 5th of September 00.00 hours BST. Christian programming with same music style from 02.00-08.00 hours BST. Does anybody remember, when it came off the air? I remember it had a great sunrise signal in this area, and that it was good on groundwave when visiting Dublin, May, 2001.
