2FM announce AM closure

Medium wave transmission of RTÉ 2FM is set to close on Monday. This is according to engineering announcements which are interrupting the station’s medium wave service every hour advising of the impending closure. The announcements are being aired on both of the two remaining 2FM medium wave transmitters – 612kHz from the historic Athlone transmitter site, and the low-powered Cork transmitter on 1278kHz. The transmitter serving Dublin on 1278kHz was closed last December.
