Broadcast Authorization

A broadcast authorization grants the holder permission to use a portion of the radio frequency spectrum in a given geographical area for broadcasting purposes.  In some cases a single frequency or a band of frequencies may be assigned based on the parameters of the licence issued by the Broadcasting Commission and the spectrum which is available.  Where feasible the Authority re-uses spectrum to maximize the number of broadcasters which may be accommodated.
 

All-Island and Regional Broadcasting Stations

There are currently twenty-seven (27) companies authorized to use the spectrum to provide broadcast services.  Click here to view List.
