Beaumont Move Delayed

Beaumont Radio’s proposed move to share the 89.5MHz frequency with Mater Radio is being hindered by technical details. The north Dublin-based hospital station had hoped to simulcast on both the new frequency and their present frequency between October 1st and December 1st, when they planned to switch off the 107.6FM altogether. However, the technical specifications of the new broadcasts have still to be met, and with Mater Radio having already made the switch from their previous frequency of 107.4MHz they can presently be heard over much of the city on 89.5MHz. For the frequency-sharing to work, both stations will need to reduce their present power dramatically, and talks are in progress to this end.
