87.8 FM: RTÉ Radio 1's new FM FREQUENCY IN BELFAST
From 9.00am on Friday 14 March RTÉ Radio 1 will broadcast on FM 87.8 from the Clermont Cairn transmitter near Dundalk in Louth.
Listeners to RTÉ Radio 1 in the Northern Ireland areas of Belfast, Armagh and Down, and in parts of the Republic of Ireland, particularly Louth and Monaghan, should retune to RTÉ Radio 1 on FM 87.8.
RTÉ Radio 1 is swapping frequencies with RTÉ lyric fm on the Clermont Cairn transmitter. This will greatly improve the RTÉ Radio 1 FM signal in the densely populated Belfast metropolitan area and southwards to Louth.
RTÉ has prioritised RTÉ Radio 1 versus RTÉ lyric fm for cross-border transmission to enable more Northern Irish listeners receive RTÉ's main speech service. RTÉ will shortly apply for a new frequency for RTÉ lyric fm in this part of the north-east. As an interim measure, from 14 March, RTÉ lyric fm will be available on FM 95.2.
RTÉ Radio 1 will also continue to be broadcast on LW 252 and on the internet at www.rte.ie/radio1
The LW 252 transmitter was upgraded in 2004 and broadcasts across the island of Ireland, into Britain and beyond.
RTÉ will advise listeners of the new FM frequency for RTÉ Radio 1 in the Belfast area via presenter and on air announcements from now until 14 March.
