The project objective is to find alternative, “low-cost" system to the imported and expensive broadcast equipment which can prove equally expansive to operate and maintain. This is conceived in two phases: (1) The study of some major sound broadcasting system currently in use in some countries of the region, the coverage areas in terms of the national geographical areas and population achieved by such systems and their related costs in capital and operational terms; and (2) determining the feasibility of and making recommendations on a low-cost system as an alternative to the traditional large-scale technologically more advanced (and expensive) system currently in use as well as on a national broadcasting organization which can host the fabrication and field testing of a suitable low-cost model system.
