NEW FM BAND FREQUENCIES IN MALAWI

The Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority is pleased to announce new FM Band frequencies for Malawi.

In 2018, a spectrum and frequency audit revealed saturation of the 87.5 to 108 MHz band rendering it incapable of accommodating new radio stations.

MACRA consequently engaged broadcasters in re-planning the FM Band with the aim of managing congestion and interference among broadcasters.

Below is a list of broadcasters and their new frequencies.
