Alappuzha to soon have an FM radio station

Sajimon P S, TNN Oct 21, 2012, 03.59AM IST
ALAPPUZHA: The Union government has approved All India Radio's (AIR)
proposal for setting up a frequency modulation (FM) station in Alappuzha,
where there is no such facility either in the private or the government
The present AIR (medium wave) station here only relays the programmes from
Thiruvananthapuram and New Delhi stations.
The upcoming FM station will have 10kW power and a 50-km coverage at the
primary level.
"AIR New Delhi office will soon invite tenders for erecting tower and
transmitters for the Alappuzha FM station. It will be set up in the 33-acre
transmitting radio station land at Pathirapally," George said.
The transmitting station was commissioned in 1971 with a 100kW capacity. In
1999, its capacity was upgraded to 200kW. Though Alappuzha station is the
highest power transmitting station in the state, it does not possess either
a studio or a production wing.
