This webcast:

SAMS began testing its first FM radio transmitter on St Helena on 23 December 2012.

On 13 February, 2013, World Radio Day, hosted programming began with the launch of the new station name, SAMS Radio 1.

Further hosted programming is slowly being phased in as the studio music database continues to be built.

St Helena news is aired locally at 7am, 10am, 12 noon, 5pm and 7pm on weekdays. Public Service Announcements follow the news at 7am, 12 noon and 7pm.

Technical issues remain with the FM network, mainly with our repeater at High Knoll. Equipment and parts have now been received to help resolve these issues, and work is now underway to resove these issues.

Listeners are reminded that until the network is fully operational, it is still subject to breaks in transmission as work continues.

The FM radio frequencies on island are:
Jamestown: 102.7MHz
High Knoll: 90.5MHz
Blue Hill: 105.3MHz
Levelwood: 105.1MHz

Online streaming is hoped to be in place in early March.
