RAI Naples cloded down on 657 kHz
RAI Naples (Marcianise) 657 kHz was closed down as from Sep 17. The transmitter used to be on air 24 hours daily relaying Radio 1 programmes in Southern Italy and, at night, to the Mediterranean area. No official news was issued, but local sources report about a lease contract for the area coming to its deadline. Listeners in the Mediterranean only viable substitute to Naples is Caltanissetta 567 MW at 0400-2200 UT).

Without this 120 kW there is of course considerably less signal from Italy now, It appears that one of the remaining RAI transmitters on 657 (presumably the one in South Tyrol) goes off at local midnight with the usual RAI close-down tone sequence while the other one (presumably Pisa/Coltano) stays on overnight now, having taken over this service from Marcianise it seems.
