Good news from Greenland. It has been revealed a few hours ago, that KNR is to return to three Medium Wave frequencies following a lot of criticism about the lack of reception of KNR on the sea and outside towns and villages in Greenland.

Three MW frequencies are expected to return:

Qeqertarsuaq – anytime between October 1st and December 1st 2014
Nuuk  – anytime between January and March 2015
Simiutaq, Qaqortoq –  approx.  June 1st 2015

No frequencies nor powers were quoted, but previously they were:

Qeqertarsuaq –  650 kHz (5 kW)
Nuuk  – 570 kHz (5 kW)
Simiutaq, Qaqortoq – 720 kHz (10 kW)

And 650 kHz is of course the most commonly reported KNR frequency reported in Europe.
