1955

January

01: Germany - Europe 1 starts broadcasting with 400 kW on longwave from the former Voice of America studios in Paris. The broadcasts interfere with Genevan based Radio Phare so that the openings programme is interrupted at 7 o'clock.
03: Germany - Due to the interference problems with Radio Phare from Geneva, Europe 1 decides to shift frequency. This turns out to be a bad choice due to problems with Radio Luxembourg.
08: Germany - Europe 1 does not find a suitable frequency. The licenceless Radio Luxembourg protests against the interference caused by the new station.
??: Norway - Langerak raises power to 0.6 kW and moves to 300 kHz, while a 0.6 kW powerline transmitter in Sogndal starts broadcasting, but is closed down in December.
