Voice of Tigers, the official radio broadcast of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), began satellite broadcast to South Asian countries from Vanni starting from today, LTTE sources from Kilinochchi said. "We are holding the inauguration ceremony on the 69th birthday of late Anton Balasingham as a mark of respect for his contribution to the progress of Tamil media. I also wish to thank all the staff at VoT for making the station a voice of Tamils," said Head of LTTE's Political Wing, S.P. Thamilchelvan speaking at the event.

"Mr Balasingham was instrumental in providing the vision and laying the foundation for developing communication networks for our movement. He relentlessly advocated that a modern communication network is indispensable for our success," Thamilchelvan added.

The radio service will use similar frequencies used by the National Television of Tamileelam (NTT), using Eurostar at 11.506 GHz symbol rate 2894, vertical polarization, the media unit officials said.

The broadcast will be in two segments, between 6:30 a.m and 9:00 a.m., local time, and between 6:00 p.m and 9:30 p.m.
