I emailed the RTÉ general information email this evening enquiring about the return of the LW 252 frequency, and I have just received the following reply:

“Thank you for your email on behalf of your friend. We have been advised that power to the LW transmitter will be powered up gradually from approx. 9:30 on Monday 16th August. Hopefully, there is no issue and coverage will be restored to you at some point during Monday 16th.”

So it looks like the frequency will be back on the air tomorrow. I will monitor it as my QTH is only 20Km from the transmitter site
