Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation

After CRI I then tuned into the Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation (SIBC) on 5020 kHz on the 60m short wave band.

SIBC is the official radio broadcaster of Solomon Islands.

Shortwave radio broadcasting in the British Solomon Islands commenced in 1952. The Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation was founded in 1976, replacing the Solomon Islands Broadcasting System (SIBS).

SIBC’s broadcasts reach more than 5,000 villages throughout the Solomon Islands.

This year SIBC celebrated its 69th anniversary.
