1 of the 5 short wave transmitters that beam RRI’s broadcasts is not working. The transmitter in Tiganesti, BD 300-1 near Bucharest, is still out of order. RADIOCOM, our broadcasting service provider, has announced that it will take up to several months to replace the broken components.
In exchange, another short wave transmitter, in Galbeni, in the northeast of Romania, ID 300-1, has been repaired and is currently working.
Due to the failure of the transmitter in Tiganesti, the digital broadcasting (standard DRM) of some RRI programs in English, French, German and Russian has also been disturbed. Meanwhile, we are kindly asking you to tune in for RRI’s short-wave broadcasts on the second frequency which we listed on the frequency schedule, as RRI usually broadcasts its programs on two frequencies to one target area. You’ll find the frequency schedule on RRI’s webpage www.rri.ro, under the ‘Frequencies’ button.
We are sorry for any inconvenience and hope the situation will be remedied soon!
