It seems that local English-language radio station, Merge, are currently looking for feedback from the local community on how they are doing.

There is a 3 question form they have online that they would like people to fill in if they have the time. It took me just a couple of minutes to fill out, they ask for your full name but say they will keep it confidential.

If you are interested in having your observations on their radio station heard, you can fill in the form by clicking here.

More soon!

How about broadcasting in Salalah?? I cant understand why, as yet, none of the main players in radio do this. They would have a captive audience! Salalah only gets Radio Sultanate of Oman which painful and amateur at best!

The answer to the above question is that it's a separate licence. The broadcasting licenses issued so far are for the Muscat area only.

Still, Salalah got the BBC World Service on FM instead. Better radio, just not as easy to dance to...

Ultimately it's down to advertisers and sponsors of programmes- if they wanted to have Salalah, they'd be there.
With wi-fi or 3G and an iPad you can listen to radio from anywhere in the world- even HiFM or Merge!

Our OmanTel internet can't cope with streaming radio and I've certainly never picked up BBC World Service on the car radio. (I don't have an iPad or 3G). Anyway, given Salalah is Oman's second biggest town I'm sure there would be more than enough interest to keep advertisers and sponsors happy. Just not sure how much, if any, real research has been done into making this a reality. It's totally bizarre that we get nothing here!!

JJ- I suspect that Sohar is considered Oman's second city for all practical purposes.
