The Federal Communications Commission (ComCom) has successfully awarded new mobile radio frequencies. All three current operators, Salt, Sunrise and Swisscom, could acquire a wide range of new frequencies in an auction.
OFCOM is your point of contact in the case of technical interference to radio traffic or to reception of radio or television programmes using an aerial. If you receive programmes by cable, please contact your cable provider.
In order to ensure that Switzerland is provided with broadcast services (radio and television programmes) and telecommunications services (mobile communications), radio transmitters must be operated. The transmitter sites are shown on an overview map.
The allocation of frequencies to different radio services is laid down in the national frequency allocation plan. This consists of the actual plan (radio services classified according to frequency ranges) and the annexes with rules for utilisation of the corresponding frequency range.
What kind of broadcasts can I actually receive at home and on which frequencies can I find the programmes I am looking for? All these questions can be answered by our overview of transmitter locations in Switzerland.
As part of its surveillance of radiocommunication licences, OFCOM checks that persons who operate radiocommunication equipment hold a valid licence. OFCOM also verifies that the radiocommunication equipment which is operated conforms to the requirements stipulated in law.
