Radio Australia has officially launched a 24-hour English-language service in Phnom
Penh, bringing news, current affairs and radio features to the frequency 101.5FM.
With a new one-kilowatt transmitter located at Cambodian National Radio, the service
can be heard at least 50 kilometers outside the capital and joins the BBC as the
second 24-hour English language radio available in Cambodia. Radio Australia's Khmer
language service has been broadcast into Cambodia since 1992 and was one of the survivors
of budget cuts during the 1990s.
