radio stations in uganda and their contactsA radio is an electronic device that transmits and receives electromagnetic waves of radio frequency more so those consisting of sound messages. Radio waves are electromagnetic waves of frequency ranging between 30 hertz to 300 hertz though those in Kampala are between 80Hz and 100Hz. A radio station is an organization for the production and transmission of radio broadcasts. Radio stations transmit radio waves at different frequencies or bandwidths so one can tune from channel to channel to access the different available ones. There are different types of radios namely AM radio (amplitude modulation), shortwave radio, ham radio, walkie-talkie, etc. In Kampala however, the major types of radios are FM radio (frequency modulation) and satellite radio. FM Radio is the commonest type of radio used and listened to in homes, cars, or even in the garden giving a better sound quality with low chances of electrical interference.


Satellite radio is a more modern form of radio commercial that needs a monthly subscription for access. It is powered by satellites orbiting the earth hence allowing them to have worldwide coverage affecting the audio quality. This type of radio is encrypted and therefore needs a special kind of receiver to capture the radio waves. Before the monthly subscription is cleared, a computer chip hinders the receiver from gaining access to the satellite and you’re unable to access these channels.


How radio works

A radio operates by transmitting and receiving electromagnetic waves in the form of radio signals that move back and forth rapidly. A transmitter radiates this forcefield outward through an antenna. A receiver then picks up the field and converts it to sounds heard via the radio. In FM radios, the signal frequency is the one that changes. When tuning the radio, the number dictates the kilo or megahertz the signal is broadcast at.


What radios are used for?

Radio remains the most popular mass communication medium in Kampala with the vastest geographical stretch and the largest audience compared to newspapers, television, and even the internet. They don’t require data bundles or airtime for communication or usage, it is free of charge except for satellite channels which are also only accessed by those with connections to the satellite or internet. Radios are democratic electronic devices that can be used by both the rich and poor, educated and uneducated, young and old alike, all regions and all tribes, each gender and race, and so on. Radios are a source of information and academic development by broadcasting educational programs in several languages depending on the region ranging from nutrition information for mothers, medical information and updates for health workers or the public, how to prevent pandemics or viral infections, agriculture and farming techniques or school lessons for children. Radios broadcast both local and international news with authentic sources from trusted employees updating listeners on an hourly basis on current affairs and events in both English and other local languages. Radios help find the location of disaster victims through announcements made by the victim’s families and relatives. The same applies to businesses, radios increase sales by promoting businesses through advertisement. Radios can be accessed anytime and anywhere due to their portability, no need for a power supply source but this depends on the type you have. They are also of very low cost and more affordable than other types of electric devices plus they consume less power. Also, the general cost of producing radio broadcasts is quite low compared to television shows and other visual programs.


Radios build a community through meaningful community engagement and participation of the radio listeners by calling radio stations to say out their views to the presenter while the community members listen in. It has a wide coverage reaching areas other technology interventions don’t, where electricity is a myth, the network is a problem, and so on. Above literacy, it’s the most efficient mode of information delivery in hard-to-reach areas that consider having the correct knowledge means the difference between harvest and hunger, between confidence and humiliation, and life and death.


Satellite radios also have their advantages to the broadcaster in that they require low start-up, automation technology has made broadcasting easier, low running and operation costs, access to an international audience, easy to transition into podcasts, available on every device be it phones, hoofer speakers, television and so on, access to better audience insights, etc. But the downside of this is that there’s a struggle in getting listeners and they solely depend on the availability of the internet for accessibility.
