major frequency changes in Sweden

Post by PFM907 » 07 Jul 2018 21:05

from Aug, 1st, the commercial local / city networks will be removed and replaced by 3 national / regional ones.
furthermore, FM coverage among most of the towns will be improved from actually 3-5 up to 5-8 stations then.
remember that most of the frequency used at the moment will be changing the station carried-out from that date.
in other words: everything we have learned and experienced about S frequencies / stations names will be gone.
the old plan was valid for the past 15 years, the new one is supposed to bring more variety to the smaller cities.

remember to keep in mind, that it will take some time until listings on onair.nu, radioguiden, fmlist, ukwtv.de .. will be upated after the switch-over

In connection with this, licensee NTM has also stated that they will put down their format East FM as of August 1st.
What a shame! Will be missing East FM.
