Radio Omdurman transmitter jams Radio Dabanga

In an article called ‘The Perils of Reporting in Sudan’, the Institute for War and Peace Reporting says “Meanwhile in Darfur and across the border in eastern Chad, the number of listeners who tune in to Radio Dabanga has mushroomed, causing a rush for radios in markets across the region.” The report goes on to say that “… the government does not welcome such broadcasts. It continues to try and block the signal, even taking the state-run Radio Omdurman off the air while Radio Dabanga is on, and using its transmitter to interfere with Dabanga’s shortwave frequency.”
