Radio Free Sarawak has kicked up a storm from listeners and internet downloaders from all over the world. So far there are positive reception reports from all over the world-but reception in the most crucial target areas in Sarawak’s interior remain unclear! There are positive reception reports from Japan, Russia, Turkmenistan, Dubai, Australia etc. There are also positive reception reports from Lawas and Pantu. However the listeners from Selangau and Simunjan are still scratching their head/ears!
We call upon all readers here to try to ask for reception reports from your friends in the interior-to improve our understanding on how the radio perform in the interiors. It will not work if the radio reception work all over the world but not so well in its centrally targeted area. So please let all your friends/relatives in the interior know about this radios’ frequencies and broadcasting time ASAP!
It should be noted that 1 essential ingredient of free and fair election is accessible media to all contestants so that the voters can make informed choice. While BN controlled all media outlets the NGOs are doing their part to provide an alternative for all voices, expecially the excluded voices from the Oppostion and civil society, to be heard in the interior.
Some suggestions we received so far for RFS: expand the broadcasting time-this may need to wait for the radio to stabilise and streamline its operation first. Then there are those who suggest to expand to Sabah and even to Semenanjung. Well-the same constraint as above. Then there are those good samaritans who suggest donating radio sets to folks in the interior-or that they want to donate to the RFS. Great-let’s know your contact and the organiser will come to/contact you ASAP!
