NDO – The Voice of Vietnam (VOV) inaugurated the national 10kW FM transmitter in Ky Son district’s Huoi Tu commune in the central province of Nghe An on March 9.

The facility, which is part of the national ethnic radio channel project, is installed at an altitude of around 1,200 metres, with a total investment of approximately VND8.5 billion (US$373,150), funded by the VOV.

With its FM signals covering an area of nearly 8,000 square kilometres, the 10kW FM transmission will bring national radio programmes to about 200,000 ethnic people in Nghe An and Ha Tinh provinces, and a part of Laos.
