Last hours of 621 and 1008 khz  View Printable Version 
Monday, December 31 2018

On December 31st we'll be waving goodbye to 1008 (100kW) from Holland and RTBF International on 621 (300kW) from Belgium.
In the case of 1008 kHz: December 31st only for UK/Ireland/Portugal, https://www.grootnieuwsradio.nl/k/n663/news/view/115687/41482/vanaf-22-30-oudejaarsuitzending-met-hans.html now says that they will wave goodbye to mediumwave at 01:00 (CET of course, = 0000 UTC).

In Belgium things could get really interesting, considering that during the last days the 621 kHz carrier again stayed on air all night long. And once more: In no way this signal is still run with 300 kW. A two-digit figure appears to be realistic.
