Thanks for the reminder about 15320 kHz Eamonn.
Match thow-in is at 3.30pm UK/Irish time (14.30 UTC).

RTE have also responded to reception reports sent to for their
Mon-Fri broadcast (currently on on 5820 kHz).
RTE verie-signer used to be Bernie Pope in Dublin - does anyone know if she
still confirms reports for RTE?

By the way, the RTE webpage for how to listen to the match
still shows frequencies used last year (i.e. 9470 and 17540)!

RTE Radio can be contacted at:
I assume they'll acknowledge reception reports on the GAA All Ireland Senior
Football Final.
It's being relayed to Africa tomorrow from 13:00 - 17:00 GMT on 15320 Hz.
