(From BBC Monitoring International Reports)
Since early 2003, RFI [Radio France Internationale, the French external radio service] has now over 100 FM transmitters. New FM transmitters have been set up in Ajlun in Jordan, Arta in Djibouti for RMC M-O, Sambava, Nosy Be and Fort Dauphin in Madagascar, in addition to the 59 transmitters in Africa, 25 in Europe, three in the Middle East, four in Asia Pacific and six in America.
FM is RFI's priority today. Among all international radios, RFI is the radio which has the largest number of FM transmitters: BBC has only 60, Voice of America and Deutshe Welle even less than that.
