NMC should be in charge of spectrum distribution not NCA


Summary short_text

The Ghana Independent Broadcasters Association has reacted to the shutdown of some forty-nine illegal television stations by the National Communications Authority for operating without authorization.

Following the shutdown Wednesday, April 21, the NCA explained that the move forms part of a continuous monitoring exercise conducted on various Satellite Free-to-Air Television platforms using the Broadcast Monitoring System and the Radio Spectrum Monitoring System.
