Post by nachoman »

Triple J radio transmitting very poorly in Perth this morning. Very low volume and background electrical noise.

Sure it's not just some alternative music?

I meant to reply to this one ages ago (12 months!) The antenna array for JJJ/Classic FM was hit by lightning and it took out some elements (and some other stuff that got fixed) AFAIK the antenna is still damaged. With the current state of affairs with ABC, they'll probably have to fire someone to raise the money to fix it.

It's so sad that the ABC are getting cut like this.

The ABC is the media source I practically grew up on!
