Radio Apac 92.9 FM extension

In May 2000, Radio Apac 92.9 FM extended its services by installing a rebroadcast system at Odokomit, Lira District. The rebroadcast system is at 106.5 FM. The additional radio equipment, another donation from The Commonwealth of Learning (COL), was installed/commissioned by Mr. David Walker and members of the local community.

During this time, a WorldSpace antenna was also installed on the Radio Apac tower in Apac.
