Reestablished in March 1997, when it was granted a permit to operate on FM. Experimented with shortwave transmissions via Radio Nederland facilities during July 2000, but these were terminated for technical reasons. Restarted transmissions in April 2001 via facilities of Germany's Deutsche Telekom (see). Eventually hopes to resume shortwave broadcast via its own transmitter, if and when the current tight regulations in Angola are relaxed.
