New channel testing on FM 107.9

A new radio channel is said to be testing on the FM 107.9 band. This was previous allocated to Hiru FM and the testing is said to be carried out using English, Sinhala & Tamil music. We are unable to confirm who is operating this channel but it could be an ABC Radio Network channel.

If so they will either be planning to launch Sun FM or Hiru FM over this frequency.

Please keep us updated as when information becomes available about this channel.

Even though this looks as a ABC channel. According to the audio quality, I suspect this as a new channel operated probably by the "Tharunayata Hetak" movement.
