Any updates on this blank carrier on 99.1?
Space FM will have to find a new home or postpone broadcasting for the moment as there is a temp on that frequency for October and November.

I think the 99.1 blank carrier might have been ITT fm but am unsure. Space fm haven't updated their facebook in a while.

The 99.1 thing was probably ITT, they have been known to switch on their transmitter at random times.
Despite their constantly being added and deleted from the scan due to uncertainties, the No.1FM and All80s relays are still on 105.7 and 99.0 in Dublin respectively. Kiss FM from Meath is also on 105.7.

Nothing on 99.5 this evening. Hearing oldies music in between 91.9 and 92.0 again, can't tell which as they are battling it out with 2FM.

FLIRT appear to be on a silent carrier the last few weeks whenever I've managed to pick them up. Signal gets out well though.

I don't know for what reason specifically, but I'd imagine it's due to interference from Tipp Midwest Community Radio on 106.7. They suffer from interference from Newstalk in certain areas also, and Sunshine in others (just on my travel route). I don't see much of that changing just by moving where they have, I'd consider a different frequency somewhere else entirely if I were them.

Energy 1395 and Retro 91.0 have merged into one entity, Fun Radio Dublin, and are conducting test transmissions. I'm not sure whether Connect are involved, but Fun are testing on 92.0 at the moment also. More info soon.

Connect seem to be part of the merger as well. It's a good move for all concerned as they can combine resources and hopefully sustain a bigger and better oldies service.

Kiss FM Dublin have moved (again) to 101.5FM.
The station of the same name from Meath on 105.7 has changed its name to RetroNow.

I think kiss fm moved to 101.5 quite a while ago as it was down as 101.5 on the list in the opening post before i updated the post today.

105.7 RetroNow

@dancemusicdj I'll let you decide on the most accessible stream, I wouldn't have a clue!
I confirmed earlier and Flirt FM is definitely located in County Laois - it's just a very high-powered outfit which reaches much further.
