CA denies cyber-attack on Hope FM

28 January 2015, 21:28 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - The Communications Authority of Kenya has allayed fears that Hope FM’s frequency was infiltrated on Tuesday night.

According to reports, the radio station’s frequencies were hacked or compromised by unknown people, creating an impression of cyber-attack against Hope FM.

After conducting investigations into the matter, CA said it had found out that was not the case.

The commission explained that the station’s technical staff switched off their Studio Transmitter Link (STL) for maintenance onTuesday night around 11.30PM, but forgot to switch off the STL receiver at Limuru.

“This resulted in the STL receiver at Limuru to pick broadcasts from adjacent transmitters, feeding the same to Hope FM transmitter. Some of the adjacent transmitters to Hope FM include IQRA FM whose broadcasts filtered through to the transmitters of Hope FM,” CA said in a statement.

“This was the source of the interference experienced by Hope FM listeners last night.”

The commission said it routinely carries monitoring exercises to ensure such interferences are minimized and assured Kenyans of its commitment to ensuring there is order in the ICT sector.
