Belgium medium wave stations closing 31 December  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, December 18 2018

RTBF 621 kHz - Since this morning 0459z, the following message is broadcast
at the end of each hour on 621 kHz: "Ã compter du 31 dÃcembre, La PremiÃre
va cesser d'Ãmettre en ondes moyennes. Pour continuer à nous Ãcouter,
basculez votre rÃcepteur radio en FM sur la frÃquence de votre ville. Vous
pouvez Ãgalement nous Ãcouter en direct en DAB+, via l'application radio
player, ou sur auvio."

"From December the 31st, La PremiÃre will cease transmitting on the medium
wave. In order to continue listening to us, switch your radio reciever to FM
on your city's frequency. You can also listen to us live on DAB+, through
radio player app, or auvio."

The message seems to be only broadcast on MW, as it is followed by the end
of the advertisement. Curiously, the second sentence is (almost) the same as
in Allouis's equivalent announcement in December 2016.

I did not hear any such message on VivaCità (1125 kHz); neither did I find
any information about the time of the last transmission, so I can only
suppose that La PremiÃre will become silent at 1905z (20:5 local) as usual.

RTBF's website mentions the possibility to listen to RTBF international
through Atlantic Bird 3 satellite:
https://www.rtbf.be/entreprise/recevoir-la-rtbf, but wikipedia says that
this satellite should be replaced in 2019.
