About France's radio stations
France is located in Western Europe, its capital is the world-famous and romantic Paris and 67 million people live in this country. The history of the radio begins in 1899 when the Italian Gugliermo Marconi establishes a radio connection between England and France. Radio Tour Eiffel broadcasts the news for the first time on November 3, 1925. Other private stations begin broadcasting in English and on July 22, 1939 the longwave transmitter is inaugurated in Allouis and broadcasts at 182 kHz (1648 m). During the invasion of Germany to France many stations were silenced and others were intervening for military use. At the end of the war most of the stations transmitted again.
