The Voice of America launched satellite transmission of the daily Amharic language programs for our audience in Ethiopia in March.
The international broadcasting agency launched this new means of transmission in order to overcome the jamming being conducted by the Government of Ethiopia. Call or e-mail to us if you have heard the show on your satellite service. We are exploring other alternatives so check our web site for further developments.
Our new satelllite feed is live, so tune in The Big Dish at the normal 9 p.m. shortwave broadcast hour in Ethiopia.
