The volunteer-run radio station Radio North Angus (RNA) has opened a relay transmitter in Carnoustie.
RNA is licensed as the independent local commercial radio service for the Arbroath and Carnoustie areas, but Carnoustie residents have experienced difficulty in receiving the signal from Arbroath owing to the landscape.
Regulator Ofcom has given approval for a relay transmitter, broadcasting on 107.5FM, to serve Carnoustie and the surrounding area, and tests conducted during the past few weeks have displayed successful reception.
The remit is to promote health, welfare, voluntary organisations, educational establishments, and the local economy in conjunction with a wide-ranging music format, RNA being one of the two entirely voluntary commercial radio stations in Britain.
Carnoustie and Monifieth residents present weekly programmes Kelly Barclay, Julia Clark, Jamie Clunie, John Dempster, Robin Graham, Maisie McGregor, John Maidment, Steve Martin, Murray Nicoll, and Mark Savory.
Any organisation or business wishing publicity should make contact via firstname.lastname@example.org, and prospective volunteers should contact managing director Malcolm Finlayson at 11 Bankhead Crescent, Arbroath, Angus, DD11 2DP, or phone 01241 871446.
