KBC planning to return
Dutch-based KBC Radio, which was involved in the ill-fated attempts by UK broadcaster Big L to get a commercially viable mediumwave signal into the UK from a Dutch transmitter at Trintelhaven on 1395 kHz, is planning test transmissions under its own name. An announcement on its website says:
“We are waiting for a test licence. The reason that we are gonna test is to see if the signal is doing anything during the nightly hours. The test is on AM and not on SW. SW is always possible, but it’s not our first priority.”
The location and frequency of the AM transmitter in question will be revealed when the licence is received. In the meantime KBC continues to support Big L, which is currently online only.
