Wantok Enterprises Ltd. was formed as a telecommunications & broadcast consulting company in 1992. In 1995, following the development of a line of low power transmitters in conjunction with Total North Inc. of Whitehorse, Yukon, the company turned to designing and building complete, DC powered FM broadcast stations with a view to making community radio stations affordable enough to be purchased and maintained by local organizations throughout the developing world.
Commonwealth of Learning was one of our more supportive associates in the early years as were ACMAD of Niger, NOAA in the U.S., USAid in Mali, UNDP, UNESCO, Africare, and many others. With their support, we ultimately achieved the installation of hundreds of these stations, providing community communications in dozens of countries and to millions of people throughout Africa and Asia, as well as in the South Pacific and Caribbean regions.
Radio still remains one of the most effective means of bridging communications gaps in developing areas of the world as it speaks any local language and dialect and can deliver information from point to multi-point at a very low cost. Using solar panels and battery powered DC systems, we were able to venture into areas where local community radio had, up to that point, only been a dream.
15 years of working internationally to promote FM community
radio, it is time to pass the job on to younger hands. I would
like to take the opportunity of thanking all the great people
who have guided me, assisted me and promoted our dream. If you continue to provide
my successor, at International Broadcast Transmitters, with
the support you provided me, community radio will continue to
serve that “last mile” with information and communications for
years to come.
