RANET stands for “Radio Internet”. The station is based in Ranet Climate Resource center in Luanda town, Vihiga County. Nganyi Ranet was set up by the Kenya Meteorological Service to target communities particularly vulnerable to climate extremes. The Radio broadcasts to approximately 25 – 30 Kilometers radius. The other part of the station’s name comes from the Nganyi clan, which for many years has predicted rains locally by monitoring the behavior of plants, birds and insects.
