System FM to be Eclipsed

System FM will be leaving the airwaves this Saturday due to difficulties within the station, according to station manager Ben Murray.

Taking its place will be Eclipse FM, broadcasting from Clontarf using a 150w transmitter.

They claim to have “Dublin’s hottest dance mix” and can be contacted for more information at request@eclipsefm.gq.nu.

They also have a website.

Xtreme nonsense

Xtreme FM have said that they are not in any way involved with Energy Radio which, according to Ben Murray of System FM, was due to launch last Sunday.

He has claimed that this station would offer nationwide coverage on Medium Wave and that it was to be a co-station project between Xtreme FM and Eclipse FM! With claims like these maybe Ben should think of politics as a career move?

Radiowaves has received no response from emails to Energy Radio or Ben Murray requesting further information.

Hot Transmitter Recovered

In Dublin, the stolen 99.1 transmitter has been recovered. The equipment, which is the property of Glenn Kelly who recently pulled out of ESG and offered the use of the transmitter to Hot Radio, was stolen from Kiltipper Hill on Sunday at 4pm.

Yesterday morning’s broadcasts were traced to Terenure but were switched off just as apprehension was imminent. However a friend of “Tony Quinn” (real name Paul Archer from Blanchardstown) was found with the equipment later that day.

Hot Radio are requesting any information on Paul Archer and can be contacted by email at cbx2000@hotmail.com

ESG Back on 99.1

Dublin station ESG FM are presently back broadcasting on the 99.1MHz frequency they vacated two weeks ago which has had Hot Radio and “Cool FM” using for broadcasts in that time.

Essential Pulse

Pulse 103FM, referred to by many as “The Pirate of the Nineties”, closed down one year ago today hoping for a successful licence application which they didn’t achieve. Essential Galaxy 94FM will be rerunning the final hour of Pulse FM at 6pm this evening!

John Moves to the Galaxy

John Dempsey is leaving Hot Radio to join ESG FM. John – the man behind Dream FM and the highly recommended new ESG website – will occupy the Saturday evening slot from 6-8pm.
ESG FM broadcast to Dublin on 93.8, 94.1 & 99.1MHz.

Hot back on 99.1

Hot Radio is back broadcasting on the ill-fated 99.1 transmitter belonging to Glenn Kelly. This follows on-air announcements from ESG FM last night that they would no longer be using the frequency.

ESG Off

In Dublin, ESG FM were off air most of this afternoon on 94.1MHz for technical adjustments.

Medium wave lives again

An automated station which has been broadcasting on medium wave from Dublin’s southside for a number of months has gone live and identified for the first time last weekend as Energy Power 1593AM.

This weekend they are only broadcasting on 1593kHz AM, although they have also been available on 1278kHz AM since RTÉ 2FM’s departure from that channel.

Playing a mixture of music old and new, the station’s powerful signal should breathe life into the ailing MW band.

Tests on 828kHz

Energy Power AM, who also broadcast on 1593kHz, have launched a test channel at 828kHz medium wave. At present the output consists solely of automated music.
