Two Lochs Radio unlocks not-for-profit radio to Wester Ross

With the studio already built, Wester Ross-based Two Lochs Radio is already sourcing its transmission equipment and looking for more volunteers for programming and presentation.

The station, which last week was awarded the new local FM licence to serve Gairloch and Loch Ewe, using two frequencies, is well on the way to launch.

Chairman of Two Lochs Radio, Alex Gray, said:

"This licence award comes after years of voluntary work by many people fundraising, lobbying the authorities, building a studio, training, planning, and most recently preparing the licence application. Gaining the 8-year broadcasting licence is a major milestone for the group, and is a testimony to the perseverance and professional approach of all who have been involved with the project over the years. We believe that a truly local radio station will become a real asset to our remote and scattered communities, particularly for those who are house-bound or living alone, and also provide a valuable service to visitors and tourism businesses."

Two Lochs Radio plans to provide broad coverage of the area with two transmitters, one located on the south side of Loch Gairloch and one on Cliff Hill overlooking Loch Ewe and Loch Maree. Anyone interested in working with Two Lochs Radio or wanting more information about it should call (01445) 712712.

The station is planning to broadcast in both Gaelic and English from their studios, pictured below.
