Radio Pulpit installed a new medium wave transmitter in Meyerton, Gauteng. Broadcasts are 24/7. Sentech provides the technical support for the transmitter.
During the day reception from this transmitter is limited to a radius of 300 km around Meyerton. At night this area increases, allowing practically the entire country to be reached because of the character and nature of medium wave radio waves. Even countries to the north of the RSA can receive these broadcasts. (Click here to read more about medium wave and digital broadcasting.)
Radio Pulpit can be heard over the Internet via audio streaming.
Radio Pulpit is on the audio channel of the Vivid satellite decoder since 2006.
