2017 has certainly been an eventful year for Rhondda Radio, in July we celebrated our 10th anniversary and on Tuesday 7th November we received the news we had been hoping for, Ofcom have granted us an FM community license to broadcast to the two Rhondda Valleys.
In the past we could only broadcast to the Rhondda Fawr due to limitations and signal strength from our transmitter. Following on from meetings and consultations with Andy Bantock, who originally helped set up Radio CwmNi, he has given us hope that by using a relay signal from locations in Penrhys, Wattstown and Blaenllechau we would be able to transmit to the communities of Rhondda Fach.
We will keep you updated as to when we will be back on the airwaves and on what frequency but the wait is finally over. Our goal has been achieved.
Thank you to everyone involved in our bid and to all who supported the bid.
