On April 27th, Supinya Klangnarong from the Office of National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) consulted with Phuket Governor Mr TriAkkaradecha about broadcasting an FM frequency for emergency use.
Supinya said, “NBTC is setting out rules and conditions for the radio channel as it needs to feature correct and accurate information. This radio channel will keep residents and tourists updated on possible disasters and informed on any emergency issues.”
Mr Tri also said, “It’s a good thing NBTC offering Phuket their FM frequency for emergency use. However, there must be meetings with other related officials relating to this.”
