Ofcom allocates FM frequency to Red Kite Radio…

By Published June 05, 2017

Ofcom, the Government regulator has now allocated an FM frequency to Red Kite Radio. 107.2FM will be the new home of the first dedicated radio station for Haddenham, Thame and the surrounding villages. Mark Chapple, said at the time, “We’re over the moon with this allocation. This is at the top of the dial which makes us easy to find and because it’s away from larger broadcasters it means we’ll have a nice clear sound with no interference.”

Red Kite Radio was awarded a full-time community radio licence by Ofcom earlier this year. The station came about thanks to the Summerfest Radio broadcasts in support of and funded by the Haddenham Beer Festivals Trust. “We’ve still got lots of work ahead of us before our launch in the Spring, including moving into our permanent home at the Haddenham Garden Centre, building the studio, installing the transmission kit and of course building a music library, albeit a digital one.” “We’ll be adding more information to our growing website in the coming weeks and some sneaky pics of our set up as it comes together over the next six months.”

Red Kite Radio is a not for profit organisation and run for the benefit of the community. It will be funded through grants and the selling of advertising packages to local business of all sizes. Cost effective packages will open up the prospect of radio advertising to small traders, trades men & women and larger businesses alike. Companies and organisations will be able to benefit from radio advertising at a low price and in return know they’re supporting this great new community initiative.
