Storm Ali knocks out RTÉ Radio 1 transmitter

You may have already noticed this...

88.5fm is often the go-to frequency for listeners tuning into RTÉ Radio 1, but RTÉ has confirmed that it is experiencing difficulties with one of its transmitters due to the effects of Storm Ali.


A transmitter in the Dublin mountains has caused 88.5fm to go off air, but there is a solution.

In a tweet posted to the RTÉ Radio 1 Twitter account, the state broadcaster wrote: "Currently experiencing difficulties with Three Rock transmitter 88.5FM. We're working on it and hope to resume service as soon as possible. In the meantime, please retune to 89.1FM if possible."

Radio 1 is a nationwide channel, so listeners can still tune in by listening on 89.1fm.


RTÉ hasn't specified a time by which they expect normal service to have resumed.
