Interference on Channel 6 signal

CNS Channel 6 is complaining of interference with its television signal and wants the authorities to investigate and the new broadcasting authority has promised to look into what might be the cause of the disturbance.

Speaking to Stabroek News, one of the staff of the channel, speaking on behalf of owner CN Sharma who is ill, said that the interference commenced about one week ago.

The person said that the channel’s signal is being intercepted by a musical sound or the sound of drumming while on air.

She said that because of the concerns over the nature and origin of the interference the station sought to speak with Valmikki Singh, the head of the National Frequency Management Unit, but to no avail.

A source at the Guyana National Broadcast Authority (GNBA) said once it could be verified that there is interference at the channel, the GNBA will move to investigate it. “We could go and see what is going on,” the well placed source said yesterday when contacted by this newspaper. “As long as it is verified that there has been interference, the GNBA will work to resolve it,” the person said, pointing out that it is possible that one of the newly licenced radio stations might be the cause of the interference.
