REGISTRATION OF RADIO STATION IN KENYA by Kenyans247(1): Tue 29, December, 2020 08:07am
To start a radio station in Kenya, you will need information on licences and physical equipments for setting up the actual station.

The first step for any investor would be to get information about licences from the Communication Authority of Kenya (CAK). There are different categories of Licences based on the type of radio station you would want to start. The three types of licences include:

Public Broadcasting (KBC is the only designated public broadcaster)
Commercial/Private broadcasting service
Community Broadcasting services
Other Licencing to think about are the following:

MCSK Licence (cost is determined by the scope and nature of the use of music)
Music rights
Your choice of licence factors in on the cost of licencing as well as the equipment to acquire. The following equipment will give you an idea of what your station may need to start running.

FM radio Transmitter
Antenna
Coaxial cable
Power supply
Equipment Racks
Connectors
Audio Equipment
UPS
A breakdown of audio equipment needs would be as follows -:

Limiter – compressor
Tape decks
Mixing tables
Cd players or a PC
Noise free boom Microphone
Amplifiers
Monitor Speakers
Speaker Mounts
If all the details sound too complicated for your liking, companies such as Clyde Broadcast will help you get started. In their own words, they can put together requirements for studios, technical areas, transmission and outside broadcast equipment as well as offer full installation and training before you go live. Kenyan Broadcasting Corporation (KBC), Capital 98.4 and Radio Maisha are some of the radio stations they have worked with in Kenya.
