Gold Coast digital radio channel plan
On 10 December 2020, the ACMA Authority agreed to make the Radiocommunications (Digital Radio Channels – Queensland) Plan Variation 2020 (No. 1), which has been registered on the Federal Register of Legislation. The Authority also agreed to make the Radiocommunications (Foundation Category 1 Digital Radio Multiplex Transmitter Licence – Gold Coast) Declaration 2020, which has also been registered on the Federal Register.
Brisbane digital radio channel plan
The ACMA received alternative suggestions to its proposal to vary the Brisbane digital radio channel plan to allow greater effective radiated power levels and increase antenna height of the digital radio multiplex transmitters in the Brisbane area.
Consequently, the variation does not include any changes to the Brisbane digital radio channel plan. The ACMA will consider the alternative suggestions that it received next year.
We are proposing to vary the Radiocommunications (Digital Radio Channels — Queensland) Plan 2007. The variation includes a digital radio channel plan for the Gold Coast. This will mean that digital radio services for the Gold Coast area can be rolled out in the future.
The variation will also make changes to technical arrangements for digital radio services in the Brisbane area.
Have your say
The consultation paper does not ask specific questions. However, the ACMA welcomes comment on the issues raised, or other issues relating to digital radio in Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
