Radio Carousel Navan was located in the newly-opened Navan Shopping Centre in a glass shop unit through which the public could observe the presenters as they broadcast on 91.5MHz and 1386kHz.

In its early days Radio Carousel Navan broadcast for 12 hours a day, but this was later expanded to 24. Although it was independent of the main station, it joined it at certain times of the day.

By April 1988 Radio Carousel Navan was the only station left on the network but this closed in May 1988.
