New local radio station

Local radio station Mearns FM is now available in the Portlethen area.

In a Facebook posting the station – which is staffed by volunteers – said it is now broadcasting in Portlethen on 105.1FM. “We hope you enjoy the music and please get involved with your local station!”

Mearns FM is headquartered in Stonehaven. In April last year Mearns FM was successful in a bid to increase power at all three transmitters and install a new transmitter at Portlethen church hall. This was to improve coverage across South Aberdeenshire. Half the funding needed was a grant from Aberdeenshire Council. The station was also planning to open a new studio in Portlethen Church hall,¬†part-financed¬†by the National Lottery’s Awards for All awards programme.
