MR6 Régió Rádió, Hungary closing down
At 22th of december MR6 Régió Rádió will be closed down due financial reasons.
Hungarian Radio made an annonucement today: A new station "Radio Danko" will start on MR6's former frequencies (1116, 1251, 1350 KHz), and as I heard they want to start additional transmitters to cover the whole nation. Maybe 1341 and 810 khz will be reactivated.
Radio Danko will carry Hungarian and gipsy folk songs and news from the countryside (like Antena Satelor in Romania). The station is named after Pista (Steve) Dankó http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pista_Dankó Theese info about the frequencies are not 100% yet.
