Broadcast communication's that were knocked out by cyclone Pam, have been fully restored.
Francis Herman, the ABC's program manager for the Pacific Media Assistance Scheme, says transmission engineer Steve White and local technicians have fixed Radio Vanuatu's short and mediumwave service to a level better than before the cyclone.

Cyclone Pam has destroyed much of Vanuatu's vital radio infrastructure.
All radio stations went off air when the cyclone hit. Most are yet to be restored although FM in Port Vila was restored on Sunday night.
Francis Herman, the ABC's programme manager for the Pacific Media Assistance Scheme, says many are now relying on the mobile phone networks.
[In an accompanying audio clip, Herman says there are no radio services on the air outside Port Vila. He says the priority is to restore services from the national broadcaster VBTC as soon as possible. Mediumwave transmitter masts in Port Vila and Santo were wrecked in the storm. FM antennas were "blown away". Shortwave broadcasts went off the air when a generator ran out of fuel.]
