Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation back on-air

The Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation is back on air after the Solomon Islands Electricity Authority (SIEA) restored electricity following a long power blackout at its Henderson transmitter. General Manager, Cornelius Rathamana, said he was pleased that the people of Solomon Islands were again able to hear broadcasts from both 1035 AM and 5020 Shortwave. He said SIEA power to the area was cut early on Tuesday morning. It is thought a storm caused trees to fall and break the lines between the Lunga Power Station and the Henderson sub-station. SIBC began broadcasting again throughout Solomon Islands on 1035 AM and 5020 Shortwave just after midday yesterday.
