Radio News in March 2008

New AM licenses announced in the Netherlands

Arrow Classic Rock logoSeveral new AM stations will likely go on the air in the Netherlands. Five regional licenses have been awarded, two of them to Crosspoints BV, the company that owns Arrow Classic Rock and Arrow Jazz FM. This came as a surprise because Arrow recently gave up its high power channel of 675 kHz. The company now plans to launch "Arrow Talks" on 828 kHz together with another media company, but hasn't found a partner yet. The 828 kHz transmitter is located in Heinenoord and has a power of 20 kW (daytime) and 5 kW (nighttime). Arrow's second frequency of 1035 kHz is to be used as a secondary outlet for Arrow Jazz FM, which is currently unable to cover its target area well enough. The 10-kilowatt transmitter will be located in Echt. 1224 kHz in Almere (40 kW day, 20 kW nights) was awarded to Stichting Radika, which currently broadcasts on FM from Rotterdam under the name Radio Amor, but hasn't disclosed its AM plans yet. The frequency of 1485 kHz (1 kW in Tilburg) has been awarded to Radio Marina, an oldies station. The frequency was advertised for a single transmitter in The Hague, but Radio Marina says it plans to operate two transmitters serving South Holland and Flevoland.
Finally, 1557 kHz (1 kW in Amsterdam) was given to Stichting BKB3, which currently operates Magic FM in Amsterdam and Alkmaar. Information about the stations was published in English by Media Network blog on March 4-5.
