Earth Hour: RTE 567kHz still burns energy inefficiently

Published Categorized as Uncategorized
RTE’s costings are historical, not based on modern technology and so are meaningless. They refer to the running of the Tullamore transmitter which is 30 years in service energy inefficient and reduntant. Dept. of Communications state the transmitter is obsolete. RTE’s charter obliges the use of modern technology
New MW transmitter will immediately solve four problems:

1.     Slash operating costs
2.     Solve N, Ireland coverage / restore cultural links in the spirit of Good Friday Agreement
3.     Give extra option in S. East UK / Europe after dark
4.     Allow launch of DRM across UK to Europe
