Fix-Tuned Radio Distribution
Radio 4VEH began distributing fix-tuned radios in the early 1960s. At first they were battery powered, requiring 4VEH personnel to make regular visits to change the batteries. Later, 4VEH began distributing a solar-powered model. Many thousands of fix-tuned radios have been distributed, especially in rural areas where people have little or no electricity and few radio stations.
For detailed information on current distribution programs see Sonny Solar website.

Since OpSat officially concluded December, 2004, “New Day”, also under the auspices of Men for Missions Int’l, has been formed to continue the vision of Operation Saturation and to support Radio 4VEH.
