Radio 1RPH is a member of the Radio Print Handicapped Network. Its catch-phrases are, Your information station and Turning print into sound, and it is intended to serve all those who are, for any reason, handicapped from reading printed material. [cite web |title=Value our Voices

Newspapers, magazines, books, and other printed material are read to air. 1RPH used to have a frequency just outside of the AM band, and so suffered little interference, and was heard as far away as the United States.
