The AM Alternative?
June 8, 2009
Radio Clatterbridge has started exciting discussions with the Hospital Trust about replacing the technology it uses to broadcast. The current landline telephone system which carries the signal to the wards is more than 40 years old and is becoming increasingly unreliable. Bosses have agreed to investigate whether it is possible for the station to transmit its programmes across the site via an AM (Medium Wave) frequency. If given the go-ahead, it would dramatically increase coverage at the Clatterbridge Health Park, allowing many more staff and visitors to tune in, as well as patients at Claire House and St John’s Hospice who can’t receive the station at the moment.
