Transmissions began on 107.9FM at Webster High School on August 15 as part of the Educational Radio Project, designed to train high school students in broadcasting skills and to promote personal development and confidence in young people.

The development complements station management’s ambition to complete a network of one transmitter in each of the Angus towns.

RNA has studios based in Arbroath, Montrose, Carnoustie and Brechin, and intends to open a studio at Webster’s High School in the near future.

The Co-op Local Community Grant Scheme supports development by members using their cards to vote for studio installation.

The school is also helping Jane Esson, the school principal, to arrange accommodation.

Assistance was also provided by John and Andrew Soutar of Kirriemuir Aerial Services.

RNA has trained students for various schools for over 25 years, with some aspiring to pursue professional careers in broadcasting and journalism.

RNA’s mission is to promote health, well-being, educational institutions, associations, the local economy and the relief of loneliness, and broadcasts locally produced programs in excess of 20 hours a day.
