2 May 2010.
The United Nations April 2010 survey of radio listeners in Somalia. 
The United Nations Integrated Regional Information Network (IRIN) broadcasts in the Somali language to Somalia for one hour each day using Short Wave Radio and rebroadcasts on local FM radio stations in Somalia, North East Kenya and Nairobi.

The biggest number of listeners to the IRIN Somali Radio Service is over 80 per cent in the rural areas of Mudug and Galguduud where Somali’s listen on shortwave radio because local FM radio services do not reach them.

781 people responded to the survey conducted by Organizational Development and Community Empowerment Firm (ODCEF) in Mogadishu, Somalia.
The survey assessed the listening coverage of IRIN Somali broadcasts and the opinions of listeners regarding the programs.

The survey concluded that 72 per cent of listeners in Somalia and in refugee camps in Kenya regularly listened to the IRIN Radio Somali broadcasts and that increased to above 80 per cent in the rural areas of Mudug and Galgudud where the people of Somalia listen to Short Wave radio because local FM radio transmissions cannot reach the remote countryside of Somalia.

Somalia radio listeners said the most popular programs were humanitarian and social issues because other radios only covered these issues occasionally. Radio listeners in Somalia particularly enjoyed listening to debates and discussion programs and radio dramas about social awareness issues. 


The United Nations is providing a service for the people of Somalia at a time when there is no national radio service in Somalia.


Every day and night many Somalis “twiddle the dial” (change the frequency) on their radio sets to tune in to many different local FM radio stations and on Short Wave radio Somalia listeners often listen to crackly foreign overseas radio broadcasts and put together all this information to get an idea about what is really happening in Somalia.

A letter in May 2009 from the German representative of the Republic of Somaliland (who holds the German amateur radio license with call sign DJ9KR) indicated that he would request the Somaliland Minister of Communications to move the Radio Hargeisa short wave broadcast to a different frequency.

Frequencies from 7.000 to 7.200 MHz were allocated to worldwide 2-way amateur radio communications stations on 29 March 2009 by the United Nations International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and broadcasts stations were required to move out of those frequencies.
