Termination of operation of the medium wave transmitter Rimavská Sobota.
On 31 January 2022, the Slovak Radio and Television will end the operation of the SV Rimavská Sobota string radio transmitter in the Uzovská Panica locality on the frequency of 1521 kHz.
The transmitter in the Rimavská Sobota locality broadcast with a radiated power of 10 kW and was used to broadcast Radio Patria ‘s national broadcast from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm. At night, it was supplemented by the broadcasting of the RTVS Rádio Devín program service .
The RTVS decision reflects a change in listeners’ preferences and allows RTVS to continue modernizing its terrestrial broadcasting. The funds so far intended for signal propagation via the Rimavská Sobota medium-wave transmitter will be invested in the development of Slovak Radio’s digital services, in particular in DAB + broadcasting.
