Afew times I thought i've been listening to a really cool pirate station and it will be an rte station on 94.0, makes for a cool amsophere to hear it fading in out, we don't have a lot of stations up here, its not active like London, some of the stations have been around since 1994!

They are really close to getting cancelled thanks to Tubberdy the talentless. I pay my licence fee for that, and they were dumb enough to put themselves in a position where Leo Varadkar could take the moral high ground - that's really low. For our English friends, this is the same as David Cameron giving Jimmy Carr schtick for not paying his taxes - that's a translation from the orignal Irish... :spkeng

I'm always hearing about rte going on dab in the uk, not that i’m really that into it, :o seems unlikely since they abandoned dab in ireland, maybe stations will go straight to streaming without dab. It dose seem a bit strange a lot of cars are now fitted with dab, specially in Europe, in Estonia they started using it recently.
I wasn’t aware that rte was like the BBC funded by a licence fee, it dose sound like theres been lots of scandals. :D

Ireland has always been Northern Europe's original "Banana Republic" (™Bob Geldof). Political corruption has been a way of life since the creation of the Republic. I still like to visit over there sometimes, though!

Currently there is a big corruption scandal at RTE about some of their presenters receiving payments "under the table" as it were. As for political corruption Ireland used to be pretty bad in this regard but having lived in both countries I'd say the UK is little better.
Afew times I thought i've been listening to a really cool pirate station and it will be an rte station on 94.0, makes for a cool amsophere to hear it fading in out
IIRC 94.0 is a Raidio na Gaeltachta (https://www.rte.ie/radio/rnag/) frequency -an Irish/Gaelic language station whose daytime output is mostly talk based but in the evening tends to have a lot of specialist music shows.

I still do get Raidio na Gaeltachta here on 94.0, even thought i've moved, I do miss hearing Energy 106, I used to listen to it daily or try to, fm has gotten a lot more boring since it stopped broadcasting, i've had take up other hobbies other than radio, i've managed to get hold a lot of the programming for it, I do listen to my old recordings of it.
