ABC 94FM returned to Dublin’s airwaves this evening on both 94.3MHz and 87.6MHz but without RDS at present. This replaces Gold FM which occupied the frequencies over the weekend.
Problems with links to the mountain transmitters have dogged both stations in recent times but a new link has shown no sign of trouble and Gold FM – featuring music of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s – will take up full-time residence on 87.6FM as soon as a second arrives.
A spokesperson this evening told Radiowaves, “…despite all the technical problems we are working hard behind the scenes to improve things and are grateful to all for their patience”.
Plans for an AM service have been put on hold.
Comment: ABC’s fifth birthday programming plans are in progress.
