Capital FM (Finland)


Capital FM (Finland)

Capital FM was a Finnish radio station owned by YLE. It broadcast foreign language programming 24 hours a day, in co-operation with major international broadcasters. Capital FM also aired YLE broadcasts about Finland in English and Russian, French and German. Capital FM could be listened to in Greater Helsinki (97.5 MHz), Tampere (88.3 MHz), Turku (96.7 MHz), Lahti (90.3 MHz) and Kuopio (88.1 MHz). In August 2005 the name of the station was changed into YLE Mondo. The FM frequencies outside Helsinki were no longer available for use by the YLE Mondo, but services continue in Helsinki. The channel is also available throughout Finland as one of the audio channels of the YLE Digital Television.
