FM frequency reallocation to take effect from Nov 1st 2012

A major reallocation of FM frequencies is to take place at the end of the month. The reallocation is expected to affect all the existing radio channels and will take effect from Nov 1st 2012. Some radio channels are already begun advertising their new frequencies whilst the some are yet to do so.

Please keep us updated on the list of frequencies that are to be reallocated. We hope that there are no coverage problems and interference of radio stations after the reallocation and that the transition will be smooth.

TRC assigning new frequencies
September 13, 2012, 12:00 pm

By Maheesha Mudugamuwa

The Telecommuni-cations Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka (TRCSL) had taken steps to assign new frequencies to all radio stations in the country with effect from Nov. 1, its Director General Anusha Palpita told The Island yesterday (13).

According to Palpita, Radio stations which had more than five frequencies would have two, while stations with fewer than five frequencies, would have one. Radio stations which got one frequency would get countrywide coverage, he said, adding that steps had also been taken to increase the gap between radio stations from 0.2 to 0.3.

Palipita said that the TRCSL would review existing radio frequencies and reissue them to stop disturbances. The TRCSL was now unable to provide new frequencies as all the frequencies were in use. Currently, there were 23 television stations and 45 radio stations operating in the country.

Palpita explained that a radio station with three or four frequencies meant for different parts of the country may be given a single frequency with countrywide coverage.

He said that some telecommunication/ broadcast towers were below standards and did not meet the specifications of the TRC.

Sri Lanka had around 4,500 to 5,000 broadcast and transmission towers and some of them caused environmental concerns, Palpita said, noting that some of the towers did not have lightning conductors and that had caused fear among residents living in close proximity to them.
