FEBC Kyrgyzstan was officially incorporated in May 2012 when FEBC partnered with a local FM station in the capital city of Bishkek (FM 100.5 mHz, Radio OK). In June 2014, a new 1 kw Nautel transmitter and antenna was installed. Potential audience is now 1.5 million. In October 2015, we added a new station, FM 88.8 in Issyk-Kul, w/a potential listening audience of 500,000. In October 2016, a 1,000 watt repeater station – 88.3 FM – was launched in the city of Toktogul, with a population of 19,000. We present ourselves as a family-focused station, providing talk-shows on family matters.

And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?”
