A tiny radio module that can operate off 3AA batteries is about to be launched and be available to radio manufacturers to produce a longwave radio.
It will allow RTÉ to broadcast digital on the FM network with energy savings of up to 90% and in future years carry digital DRM on LW252 with energy savings of approximately 50%.
I'm still trying to work it out. It may have a long way to go yet, but could be the last way to reach the widest 'general public' from a single transmitter if it works.
RTÉ said to be are keen to go digital on all their networks.
Will they support this, after their 'crash & burn' escapade on DAB crash or will they move towards demolition of their LW facility?
Beats getting enthusiastic about the last distorted wheezing of the various outposts of the BBC's worst network.
