ISLAMABAD- Radio Pakistan has upgraded its 10 kilowatt medium-wave transmitter at Dera Ismail Khan with a new 100 kilowatt transmitter to update the audience with the achievements being made in the ongoing military operation in North Waziristan and the efforts underway for relief and rehabilitation of Internally Displaced Persons [IDPs] currently housed in the local camps.

Giving details of the project, a radio spokesperson explained that the project was actually launched in September 2010 under a statement of collaboration signed between Radio Pakistan and the USAID but in view of the ongoing military operation and mass displacement of population, Director General Samina Parvez Khalid directed to expedite the work and now it has become operational.
