Jack FM are back on air in Dublin. The automated oldies music station have returned to 88.1MHz FM after an absence of five days.
Dublin oldies station Jack FM can now be heard on 1395kHz on the medium wave band in addition to their 88.1MHz FM outlet.
A man who allowed two unlicensed stations to broadcast from his premises has had the charges against him dismissed in Dublin’s District Court.
Anthony Hogarty, who is unemployed at the age of 60, allowed Sun FM and Jack FM to send a signal to his Sandyford-based premises where he used his own apparatus to re-broadcast their signals over the city. He had been warned to stop by ComReg but continued to broadcast despite claiming he received no money for doing so.
Judge Anne Watkin, after hearing he had no previous convictions and that he had a number of medical problems, dismissed the charges under the Probation Act.
