The operators of Radio Biafra, a United Kingdom based radio station, has launched a satellite television dubbed Biafra Television and a shortwave (SW) radio in its effort to extend its reach Africa and beyond.
TheStreetReporters.com gathered that the station’s frequency of the broadcast is 15560 kHz in the 19 meter band, broadcasting for the time being, between 7.00 – 9.00 am and 7.00 – 9.00 pm Nigerian time.
The station still broadcasts on the 102.1 FM, satellite and Internet.
The radio’s app can be download from all major app stores, including Google Play, BlackBerry and Apple Store.
In Nigeria, the station is tagged illegal and the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC), broadcasting regulators in the country has been making efforts to block its broadcast. The commission had severally claimed they had successfully jammed their radio signals on FM and satellite, and would also do the same on Internet.
Briefing Journalists last month after a meeting between officials of Ministry of Information and President Buhari, Dr. Shade Yemi-Esan, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Information said: “Right now the signals from radio Biafra have been jammed successfully by NBC.
“The commission is also working with security agencies to get those that are behind that radio because it is an illegal radio. It is not licensed by anybody to be on the airwaves in Nigeria.”
However, Nnamdi Kanu, the Radio Biafra Director in a statement posted on their website, described their shortwave radio as “Nuclear War Head”.
Currently, Radio Biafra is now, not only broadcasting in the South East and Niger Delta, but now sending its air waves across Nigeria and Africa.
