Power Cuts ABC…Gold FM

In Dublin, ABC 94FM and Gold FM were off air for long periods this morning due to a power failure but both returned after 10am.

New aerials have been installed on the Beat/Gold 87.6MHz transmitter which should see a noticeable improvement in signal in the city centre and towards the northside.

There is a new high-powered rig which will be ready to go on air after a few problems have been ironed out. Timescale mentioned is early July.

Meanwhile, ABC 94FM are planning new programming on weeknights and at weekends from mid-July if all goes to plan. Programmes will take the form of special interest shows e.g. country, classical music, rock etc.
