Zbraslav 1062 kHz already no longer carries the Country Radio feed but a kind of “retune” loop, with full pieces of music between the announcements. It goes straight on output, without the shrill equalizing that was customary for Czech AM broadcasting during the last two decades but is also not applied again on 639 and 954 kHz, at least when I last checked.
Some insights herein, at the bottom of the page under 26.May.23 15:37 https://www.radiomuseum.org/forum/100_jahre_tschechoslowakischer_rundfunk.html That TRAM 10 was 1233 kHz, reportedly removed immediately after the final transmission. What’s particularly interesting is the picture below: Looks like the 20 kW daytime operation of 1062 kHz used not a new TRAM rig but one of the old tube transmitters (ex 792 and 1233 kHz plus, I suspect, until 1988 jamming on 720 kHz).
No word when transmissions will finally cease, but Tuesday as end of month could be a good bet.
Always outside the mainstream, Radio Caroline, launched back in 1964 as the United Kingdom’s first offshore “pirate” radio station, continues to challenge perceived wisdom within the radio industry. While many other European broadcasters are gradually closing their AM outlets, Radio Caroline is successfully moving in the opposite direction.
Although also operating on DAB and online and recently adding terrestrial DTV coverage across England, the station’s main 648kHz AM site at Orfordness on the Suffolk Coast of the U.K. remains central to its operations. This facility, audible across southeast England and parts of France and the Benelux countries, saw a power increase just two years ago. The station is also investigating additional AM facilities and securing additional licenses, with a view to providing its online and DAB gold service “Caroline Flashback” to a wider audience.

Rogers Sports & Media ceased the News/Talk format of “City News 1310/101.1” CIWW Ottawa and CJET-FM Smiths Falls ON at 1:00pm today.
Rogers intends to turn in the license of 1310 CIWW, while 101.1 has flipped back to the “Country 101.1” CKBY-FM identity that it had until flipping to a simulcast of CIWW in December 2020. The Country format simultaneously moved to 92.3 Smith Falls that day and will now move back to the frequency that it was based at from 2004-20. Rogers states a new music-driven format will launch on the 92.3 frequency later this year.
