Cooks to end AM radio link to outer islands

The mast at Matavera, built with New Zealand aid money many years ago to provide a signal to the outer islands, is rusted through in parts and in danger of collapsing.

Pupils from an adjacent school have been moved to ensure their safety, while plans are made for the dismantling.

In a statement the CIIC said with the rollout of FM radio and the ability to stream events of national importance, the AM signal is no longer required.

But some concerns have been expressed about the loss of the service and Radio Cook Islands is surveying its customers in the outer islands about how they access the radio signal.
