New English Language station testing on FM 104

A new English Language Radio station is testing on FM 104 from yesterday. We are not sure who owns this channel but some rumors indicate that it may be Sun FM however the station has some clarity issues near the pettah and fort area so therefore it cannot be Sun FM.

Please continue updating us on information regarding this channel as and when they are received.

ADMIN,

There is a TV channel on Test as well, called TV 2. Any info on this ?

Rasika said...

Please find out and let us know the real situation regarding Sun and Sha FM channels. Because it seems that they are running out of frequencies for Colombo area. It is visible once you see the FM assignment list for Colombo and other areas. It is not going to be easy task to find a new frequency for Colombo area. Now 104Mhz also reserved and there is only few frequencies available in the list

The new channel(radio 1) sounds so much like lite fm. They must be aiming for a format like lite.
