The goal of the station is to promote development and well-being in the region around Bafang and Banka, with programming on women’s education,agriculture, child-rearing, protecting the environment, family health and promoting local language and culture.

RadioActive was hired by Protege QV to supply and install the studio and transmission equipment for the station, and provide training to the station staff.  Radio Flambeau uses one our mid-range packages, but with two computers, one for recording and editing, and the other for broadcasting.  The station consists of two sound-proofed studios, one of which is the Control Room, and the other used for recording.
