ACMA media release 46/2011 – 19 May
The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) is seeking public comment on a proposal to vary the radio licence area plan (LAP) for Cooma.
The ACMA is proposing that FM frequencies be made available for additional transmitters at Charlotte Pass for the Cooma commercial radio broadcasting services 2XL and 2SKI.
The proposed services are currently made available to the Charlotte Pass region on temporary retransmission licences. The variation of the Cooma LAP formalises these arrangements to allow the commercial broadcasters to provide these services themselves.
The proposed changes are contained in the Draft Variation to the LAP for Cooma Radio - No.1 of 2011 and accompanying papers.
The documents are available on the ACMA's website or by calling 1300 850 115.
More information on the ACMA's broadcast planning process and licence area plans can be found at the ACMA website. www.acma.gov.au
The closing date for comments on the proposals is 5:00 pm Friday 17 June 2011.
