Turkish firm to install radio stations in Afghanistan


A Germany-based Turkish company won the tender to set up North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) radio stations as part of the current restructuring of Afghanistan. A total of eight international companies participated in the tender. Antensan, the winner of the tender, will set up 25 stations in Afghanistan. The project is worth 5 million euros and is planned to be completed in three months.
“NATO chose to work with us. After completing this project, we will work on much bigger projects for NATO,” said J├╝rgen Jif, Antensan Technical Director. The company has plans to build a midsize transmitter on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, said Jif, adding that the station will be for Afghanistan Radio and Television Corporation (RFT).
