Gospel music jamming Radio Free Sarawak
KUALA LUMPUR: Radio Free Sarawak (RFS), one of the few voices critical of the Barisan Nasional (BN) in Sarawak, is being subjected to jamming.
“The first jamming happened yesterday… all on the 15425kHz (frequency) which is next to our station’s 15420kHz,” said Clare Rewcastle Brown, who operates the radio station and blog Sarawak Report from Covent Garden in London.
“Our experts have now traced the attack to a known agent in Belgium, who is an established broker of transmission times. He has admitted that he has been hired to broadcast at the same time and in the same frequency as our station.”
Brown, a journalist, said the agent admitted that the contract was worth “a considerable amount of money”.
He has been enlisted until December, although it is clear that his “jamming” services were only important during the election period.
