This afternoon we have just heard from the 'Agentschap Telecom' and the great news is that the shortwave radio license for Free Radio Nova has been granted!
This means the team behind the application now has a maximum of two years to fund and set up the radio studios needed to broadcast legally Free Radio Nova on 3.935 kHz
Free Radio Nova' project Coordinator Frank Carson said, "This is a massive boost to the shortwave community group, and we look forward to being the extra voice. We realise there is now a new list of things to do, and the work will be long and hard - but our plan is to start official broadcastings by Summer 2011."
Free Radio Nova upon launching, will broadcast for a total of five years, and openly encourages anyone and everyone with an interest in shortwave broadcasting, to get in touch.
Tony, a Bacup resident says, "This radio station is for all the people, and we invite everybody to get involved at whatever level they wish. If you have an interest in presenting a radio programme, then, with a small amount of training, why not come and present your own show?"
We can be contacted through our website.
