VoT's reach seen expanding

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 22 December 1998, 13:02 GMT]
The Voice of Tigers (VoT) radio’s broadcast through the short wave has attracted more listeners in the eastern and southern parts of the country, sources said. The radio service of the Liberation Tigers in the 41 Short wave meter band commenced last week.

The service is broadcast from 6.30 to 8 in the mornings and from 8 to 9.15 pm in the evenings daily on 41 meter and 7460 and 7465 KHz respectively.

Listeners in the east said that the broadcast is very clear and attempts by government to interrupt the service have not been successful.

Some people in the south of the island and the capital city of Colombo said that although they were keen to listen to the service, they are frightened of the security forces.

Sources said that the Liberation Tigers are broadcasting news, news reviews and other cultural programs over their transmission.

The VoT in the FM meter service read out a letter written by a listener in Madras (Chennai) who had heard the broadcast, who said the reception was ‘very clear’.

Services both in Tamil and Sinhala over the FM channel are interrupted, presumably by the Sri Lankan security forces, listeners in the north said.

Meanwhile, in its news broadcast today, the VoT said that one LTTE member, Kumanan (Niroshan Satkunam from Alaveddy in Jaffna ), was killed in a clash with the SLA at Oddusuddan yesterday December 21.
