98.8FM most certainly Sun FM

There has been so much of talk on whether 98.8FM will be Sun FM or Sha FM, however we can most certainly say that this is Sun FM. Testing is being carried out continuous using English music which indicates that this is a English Language Radio Station.

In addition we believe that this channel is being broadcast from the WTC. The channel is reportedly clear inside colombo city limits and we can confirm that coverage along the Negombo Road is the same as Gold FM. Only channels broadcast from the WTC have been able to maintain high levels of clarity along the Negombo Road.

We believe it is safe to assume that this is Sun 98.8FM or who knows maybe Gold FM will be shifted to 98.8FM and it will be back to Sun 99.9FM.

Please keep us updated on the latest as the days progress.

Updated : DJ's are sporting the Sun FM Logo on Facebook - Oct 8th @ 10:40am

I have very clear doubts regarding the point of broadcast because it can be clearly listened in Kurunegala area. But the other channel's Colombo frequencies originating from WTC(Hiru Gold and Sooriyan) cannot be heard in Kurunegala area. therefore it must be definitely originating from a outside location from Colombo

Rasika said...

Then why are they using a Ratnapura frequency for Sun instead it for Hiru

Lasith said...

I think V FM going 2 relaunch....just listen to 107.6

Rasika said...

Yes looks like a sha FM type version

Mario said...

@ Sam

The printing of the SUN FM logo on the poster has been a mistake.

According to ABC they are still having some tech issues with 98.8 especially in Colombo city, as its clashing with SRI on 99. I experienced this on my car and phone radio too especially in the Bamba/Kol area.

Kumar said...

That is the real situation, Guard band is 300 KHZ standard, Duminda silva or any other politician cann't change the technology barrier. Don't know why Sri Lanka had TRC?

Rasika said...

There is a solution if all can come to a conclusion. The solution is to shift the Shree 99mhz frequency to 99.1Mhz. That will not be a problem becuase for Magalkanda 200khz is sufficient to maintain the 99.3Mhz(Shree) frequency. But for this solution. all the parties including TRC, EAP & ABC have to come to a final decision.

Rasika said...

104Mhz activated, who owns this. Gold FM can be listened

nisha said...

104 was owned by Asset Media

They reserved it for there tamil fm channel.

Is there any sign of Gold fm on this freq. it seems ABC have got it.

දිමුතු said...

What is the Sinhala channel test on 107.6 ?

Rasika said...

Now 92.8Mhz from Magalkanda activated with the same channel on 98.8Mhz

nice blog

Chander said...

Guys 92.8 could be the Sun FM's Island wide frequency as I could able to listen to testing clearly in Nuwaraeliya. Now Real radio's 93.0 having problem because of powerful sun Fm coverage in here.

Mario said...

Rasiika 104.2 is Gold islandwide freq. Maybe ur getin same for 104

Rasika said...

No scanner stops at both positions. last thursday & friday 104 was activated but from saturday it has not been activated. they are testing lot of frequencies. today I observed 95.8Mhz is activated.

Mario said...

@ Rasika

I was travelling to Kandy in the weekend and noticed that 92.8 was clear closer to the Kandy area.

Now im in Nawala.

95.8 - Im not getting anything, except a faint signal of SLBC English , Colombo which is 95.6.

Im getting Gold FM on 104, But 104.2 ( GOLD FM islandwide )is very very faint. So 104 has to be transmitted from somewhere close to Colombo.

Mario said...

@ Rasika

According to the FM channel list of the TRC, there is a GOLD FM freq for UVA province. 93.4- Transmitting from Madolsima. I wonder if they are using it ? becuz they never mention in their station identity.

Rasika said...

Eventhough it (93.4) is allocated to Gold FM, until now they have not used it. that is why it is not mentioned in their web. Gold may not use it because the listner area for which the Madolsima station broadcast is not having much Gold listners.
They may have applied for this frequency because a frequency is an asset these days.

3zzz said...

V FM relaunched with a new management.

seems they are following 'Shaa' type format.

in the mean time 'Shaa FM' started their test transmission on 92.8 FM CMB

Mario said...

92.8 cant be from Col, Its not clear at all.

Rasika said...

Is it 92.8mhz or 92.4mhz

Mario said...

I got SUN FM test on 92.8 close to Kandy area. But in Col nothing on 92.8 or 92.4, there is a faint signal of Y FM (92.6) comming inbetween

Mario said...

Any of you guys out of Col, check 102.8 also

Mario said...

Did you guys notice that almost every other song on the test transmission has some problem with the vocals ? Its like you can only here the music and not the voice. I think in tech terms this is called "phase out ".

nirman said...

Sun was the best channal. Now i'm listning to Lite Fm. What is the Sun freq for downsouth?? Previously it was same on 99.9

Rasika said...

What is happening at ABC. If anyone knows, please comment.

Mario said...

@ Rasika,

I just called up ABC, appranently the only thing they can confirm is that 98.8 is gonna be SUN Colombo frequency. Even their marketing executives dont see to know anything else. Even the Sun Fm facebook group dosent give any technical updates.

Rasika said...

then what is 104Mhz. Is it actually a ABC frequency or any other else.
Do you have any info regarding this 104 frequency.
