Norway’s closing two MW Stations

November 1, 2010 at 11:18 am 2 comments

As per a press release from Norkring (in Norwegian only), the Vigra transmitter on 630 kHz will close on June 30th, 2011, while the Røst transmitter on 675 kHz will be left alive until December 31st, 2012 after only 13 years of service. This will leave Ingøy 153 as the only remaining AM transmitter on Norwegian mainland. Norkring’s sole MW station left will be the 1 kW NRK relay at Longyearbyen, Svalbard (1485 kHz). I won’t be surprised if its days are numbered too.

    The EU law directive say that private broadcasting in all bands below 30MHz can be used to private broadcasting.
