North West FM Antenna Update

April 2017: More good news! Preliminary investigative work has been completed on the new site for the Antenna, and the Australian Communication and Media Authority will soon be contacted for their approval so the project can move on. 

As far as we are aware, the end of June 2017 has been set as a time when we can expect to have the process complete and the antenna and transmitter operating from the new site - but watch this space!

In the meantime - if your signal is less than adequate, you can listen via the “Listen Live” streaming link on this website.
