Radio Pakistan to be heard in Europe soon

From the Radio Pakistan website:

  • Samina Parvez says income of Radio Pakistan increased this year by Rs 150 million due to efforts of sales department.

    Director General, Pakistan Broadcasting Corporation, Samina Parvez has said two new short wave transmitters are being installed enabling listeners in Europe to tune in Radio Pakistan.

    Speaking at a function organized by newly-elected CBA of Radio Pakistan, USO at Broadcasting House in Islamabad on Thursday, she said a shortwave transmitter was recently revived as a result of which programmes are now clearly being listened in the held Valley.

    She appreciated the tireless efforts of PBC staff, who rebuilt the PBC Station Muzaffarabad that was devastated by 2005 earthquake. The engineers of the organization restored transmission at Turbat station in spite of difficult situation. Besides, a transmitter has also been installed at PBC Hyderabad and broadcasts from this transmission can be listened as far as Dubai.

    The Director General said that digitization of precious voice treasure is underway that is making it possible to hear old and rare voices and programmes on latest gadgets like YouTube.

    I have on occasion been able to log R. Pakistan but this may make it a more regular occurrence. Any country increasing its shortwave output has to be good news (although I think CRi has probably enough channels now!)
