to an old tradition of services and technical assistance that Vatican
Radio offers to other radios (public, local, catholic or not).

institutional task to record, amplify and distribute the sound of all
the Pope public activities.

complicated interrelationships, which might call for providing technical

abroad, or offering international exchanges of different radio
programmes ( religious, cultural, musical or news)
Moreover Vatican Radio offers its collaboration and advice on
