How to tune in on air

CapeTalk is broadcast on the frequency 567 on the "AM band" which may also be labelled as "Medium Wave". It can not be found searching on the "FM Band".

While the AM signal is a powerful signal and is not affected by physical barriers like Table Mountain, it is susceptible to interference from buildings, bridges and other structures with steel internal structures.

Your best reception in the home would be near a window and away from devices that emit electromagnetic radiation, wifi routers, microwaves, mobile phones etc.

An AM aerial will improve the signal and consists of a long piece of coiled wire placed near a window and away from interference.

How to tune in via DStv

CapeTalk broadcasts via the DStv audio bouquet on channel 885.

Depending on the remote you have you can tune in by:

  • DStv PVR remote - press the "shift" button then press the "TV" button and select the channel 885
  • DStv Explora remote - press the "Grid" button and scroll down to the audio channels, select channel 885.

If you have problems tuning in

We hope to be live 24 hours a day, but should you have a problem please let us know about it.
