Oberon and Ravenshoe radio services subject to change

ACMA media release 128/2011 – 7 December 

The Australian Communications and Media Authority is seeking public comment on proposed changes to radio services in Oberon, New South Wales, and Ravenshoe, Queensland.

The ACMA is proposing to make available:

  • FM frequency 101.5 MHz, with a maximum power level of 100 watts (W), for an in-fill transmitter for the 2BS commercial radio broadcasting service at Oberon
  • FM frequency 91.3 MHz, with a maximum ERP of 250 watts (W), for an in-fill transmitter for the 4AM commercial radio broadcasting service at Ravenshoe.

The ACMA also proposes to vary the frequency allotment plan to reflect the addition of those proposed in-fill transmitters.

The proposed changes are contained in the Draft Variation to Licence Area Plan for Atherton Radio - No. 1 of 2011, the Draft Variation to Licence Area Plan for Bathurst Radio - No. 1 of 2011, the Draft Variation to Frequency Allotment Plan and an accompanying explanatory paper.

The documents are also available by calling 1300 850 115.

More information is available on the ACMA's broadcast planning process and licence area plans.

Closing date for comments on the proposals is 5:00 pm Friday 20 January 2012.
