Low power AMEdit

With the cessation of NPO Radio 5's broadcasts on 747 kHz and 1251 kHz in late 2015, the Dutch government opened a public consultation on opening up the medium waveband for low powered broadcasting.[5] In May 2016, it was formally announced that 747, 828, 1035, 1251, and 1395 kHz (previously used by full-power stations) would have a maximum transmission power of 100 watts, while 1485 kHz would have a maximum transmission power of 1 watt.[6]

A current list of AM broadcasters is available at Radio-tv-nederland.nl.
