RRI French

Chers amis, un des émetteurs en ondes courtes de Tiganesti, près de
Bucarest, qui diffuse les programmes de RRI, est en panne. A cause de ce
dysfonctionnement, la transmission numérique en DRM est aussi perturbée.
Plusieurs émissions sont donc transmises temporairement en OC depuis
l'émetteur de Saftica.

Selon notre fournisseur de services de transmission, Radiocom, les
réparations s'étaleront, malheureusement, sur plusieurs semaines. Entre
temps, nous vous invitons à suivre les émissions de RRI sur la 2e fréquence
ayant la même destination, conformément à la liste que vous trouverez sur
notre site.

Les fréquences qui ne fonctionnent pas en ce moment sont :
- 7.375 kHz à destination de Montréal entre 1h et 2h TU
- 15.340 kHz à destination de l'Afrique Centrale entre 5h et 5h30 TU
- 15.130 kHz à destination d'Alger entre 10h et 11h TU

¡Queridos amigos!, uno de los transmisores de onda corta ubicado en
Ţigăneşti cerca de Bucarest, que emite los programas de RRI, tiene problemas
técnicos. Debido al mal funcionamiento, la transmisión digital (estándar

transmisiones afectadas se transmiten provisionalmente por el emisor de onda
corta desde Săftica, cerca de la capital.

Radiocom, el proveedor de servicios de transmisión, ha anunciado que,
lamentablemente, tomará varias semanas hasta que se reemplacen los
componentes defectuosos.

There are technical difficulties with one of our shortwave transmitters in
Tiganesti near Bucharest. The DRM transmission at certain times could be
affected. Some of our programs are therefore temporarily transmitted by our
transmitter in Saftica. According to the national "Company Radiocom" will
take the replacement of the defective devices several weeks. During this
time, we ask you to use the second frequency available on our website to
listen to RRI's broadcasts.

The following frequencies of the German service are affected:

For the midday broadcast the frequency is 7355 kHz.
For the evening broadcast the frequency 6090 kHz.

You can dodge at 9600 kHz at noon and 9570 kHz in the evening.
