With national coverage in open signal, Record TV Cabo Verde transmits in the city of Praia and other islands of the archipelago. It serves up to 89% of the population and about 75–80% of the area of the nation. Signals goes as far into the ocean up to around 50 km distant as it is heard on several ferry boats, but not merchant ships. Here are a list of signals that currently cover in Cape Verde:

Up to 2014, analogue signals into Santo Antão were aired from Mindelo on channel 32. Sal had a single analogue signal. From Monte Verde's towers, Santa Luzia, the islets of Raso and Branco and the shoreline areas of São Nicolau receives transmitters to the areas, the east of São Nicolau receives its signals from Monte Curral near Espargos as the island has a transmitter but does not broadcasts Record Cabo Verde. West Fogo's analog signal spreads into northeast Brava and the northern islets. The rest of the island has its own signal at Nossa Senhora do Monte, first at channel 21, changed to channel 24.

Boa Vista remains an island without its own signal, its broadcasts are from nearby Santa Maria. Tarrafal de Monte Trigo has no signals received there, Topo da Coroa has no single transmitter located in the vicinity. While due to its high elevation, Chã das Caldeiras and area does not receive signals.

Recently digital signals has been put which is on channel 2, currently airing in the islands of São VIcente, Sal and Santiago. Record Cabo Verde and other Capeverdean channels may have a plan that will have all their signals in digital format as to many other countries including Europe, Asia, the Americas and most of Australasia.

A likely probability is that Record Cabo Verde is now available on satellite television.

Hurricane Fred (2015) 2015 hurricane

Hurricane Fred was the easternmost Atlantic hurricane to form in the tropics, and the first to move through Cape Verde since 1892. The second hurricane and sixth named storm of the 2015 Atlantic hurricane season, Fred originated from a well-defined tropical wave over West Africa in late August 2015. Once offshore, the wave moved northwestward within a favorable tropospheric environment and strengthened into a tropical storm on August 30. The following day, Fred grew to a Category 1 hurricane with peak winds of 85 mph (140 km/h) as it approached Cape Verde. After passing Boa Vista and moving away from Santo Antão, it entered a phase of steady weakening, dropping below hurricane status by September 1. Fred then turned to the west-northwest, enduring increasingly hostile wind shear, but maintained its status as a tropical cyclone despite repeated forecasts of imminent dissipation. It fluctuated between minimal tropical storm and tropical depression strength through September 4–5 before curving sharply to the north. By September 6, Fred's circulation pattern had diminished considerably, and the storm dissipated later that day.
