ICB being damned

Irish Christian Broadcasters (ICB) have addressed an Oireachtas committee for a third time in their attempt to secure a licence to broadcast their religious message legally over Ireland’s airwaves. Yesterday, the Joint Committee on Public Enterprise and Transport were addressed by the ICB, who claim that they have been given permission by the Russian Federation to utilise the radio frequencies of 549kHz and 846kHz, formerly used for Communist propoganda. The radio group told the committee that they had spent ten years talking to the authorities here and have become increasingly frustrated at their lack of progress.
The BCI granted a licence to Solas AM to broadcast a religious service from Dublin last year but the station have yet to start broadcasting.
