Bretagne 5, the only medium wave radio station in France, stood out for its broadcast of Frédéric Guyon’s marine weather forecast four times a day. A weather forecast for the southern areas of the North Sea and English Channel, Near Atlantic and Western Channel, as well as for the coastal areas of Brittany.

Bretagne 5 has decided to stop broadcasting marine weather forecasts from September 1st. This last weather forecast will be presented by Stéphane Hamon. The decision is justified in order to offer content more suitable for broadcast on DAB+. For professional sailors and pleasure boaters, there are many alternatives: mobile applications, real-time weather alert systems, etc.

Bretagne 5, which will be present on DAB+, does not give up medium waves. It will keep, more than ever, its character as a general Breton regional radio,

Bretagne 5 broadcasts its programs from its transmitter site located on the Monts du Mené in Saint-Gouéno, in the south of the Côtes d’Armor department. The transmitter center is equipped with an antenna system consisting of a 45 m ¼ wave radiating tower. height, coupled with a new generation medium wave transmitter of 10 kW on 1593 kHz.
