TWR Malawi Extends FM Reach

Posted in News

MalawiFMAntennaPlans to provide a much better signal in Mzuzu are underway. This will involve shifting of transmitting equipment from Chikangawa Forest to Mkhorongo in Mzuzu.

NKhorongo is a transmitting site of the Livingstonia Synod of the CCAP (Church of Central Africa Presbyterian). This should provide a much clearer signal in Mzuzu than from Chikangawa (a city located about 50 km south.) TWR has been there since June 2006 but the signal reaching Mzuzu was being affected by hills.

This phase of transfer will cost about 1.3 million Kwacha (US$2,700) and is part of ongoing efforts to strengthen the FM signal throughout Malawi in the next six to twelve months.

TWR’s broadcast license allows us to cover the entire country of Malawi with a strong FM signal. We currently use a network of ten transmitters that serve a potential audience of six million people.

The next steps in the plan call for three more transmitters to connect Rumphi, Karonga and Chitipa to the signal from Mzuzu. These cities on the northern tip of Malawi are some of the last population centers TWR Malawi’s network has to reach before virtually everyone in the country has the opportunity to tune into the Good News of hope in Jesus.

A listener in Mzuzu sent an email on 28 July 2015 to say:

I praise the Lord for Trans World Radio. Yes, I have access to the Internet, TV and various many other media through which the Gospel is preached. But none of these qualifies as a substitute for TWR.

I came to know the Lord Jesus through TWR way back in 2005 on April 9.

God bless TWR Malawi.

Welcome to Mzuzu. Loud and clear!
