Uganda: Bukedde Tv and TV West increase their signals
In July 2010, Bukedde Tv has installed a new transmitter to boost its signal in Kampala and the central region.
Vision Group Chief Executive Officer Robert Kabushenga said the new transmitter is twice as powerful as the old one. "It is an important milestone because we can now offer very clear signals to our viewers," he said. The new transmitter installed by Vision Group Engineers will boost reception in areas within a 100km radius from Kampala, extending it to Luwero, Wakiso, Mukono, Mityana, Masaka and Jinja.
Meanwhile, the signal for TV West, also owned by Vision Group, was set up in Mbarara town and testing will go on for three weeks. The signal should reach out in clear quality to Western Uganda - in Runyankore, Rukiga, Rutoro and Runyoro.
Vision Group owns several print and electronic platforms including Vision Voice, Bukedde FM, Radio West, Etop Radio and Radio Rupiny. The company also publishes The New Vision, Sunday Vision, Saturday Vision, Orumuri, Etop, Rupiny, Bukedde, Bukedde Ku Sande newspapers and several magazines.
