Energy Power 1593AM

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.
