Several months to repair RRI transmitter

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 work. RADIOCOM, our broadcasting service provider, has said that it will take up to several months to replace the broken component.

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, under the ‘Frequencies’ button. We are sorry for any inconvenience and hope the situation will be remedied soon!
