New Kirrie transmitter extends radio station's coverage

Transmissions began on 107.9FM at Webster's High School on August 15 as part of the Education Radio Project, designed to train secondary school pupils in broadcasting techniques and to promote self-development and confidence among young people.

The development completes the ambition of the station management to complete a network of a transmitter in each of the Angus towns.

RNA has studios based in Arbroath, Montrose, Carnoustie, and Brechin, and intends to open a studio in Webster's High School in the near future.

The Co-op Local Community Grant Scheme is supporting the development by members using their cards to vote for the studio’s installation.

The school is also supportive with Jane Esson, head teacher, arranging accommodation.

Assistance has also been given by John and Andrew Soutar of Kirriemuir Aerial Services.

RNA has trained pupils for various schools for more than 25 years, with some aspiring to pursue professional careers in broadcasting and journalism.

The remit of RNA is to promote health, welfare, educational establishments, voluntary organisations, the local economy, and relief from loneliness, and broadcasts locally produced programmes in excess of 20 hours per day.
