Key documents

The issue

The Queensland DRCP contains the digital radio channel plans for the Brisbane RA1 and Gold Coast RA1 licence areas.


We are proposing to make changes to the technical specifications for the main Brisbane digital radio multiplex transmitter (DRMT) licences in the Brisbane RA1 licence area. The changes would reduce or remove some effective radiated power restrictions that are currently in place. The power restrictions are known as the ‘Brisbane notch’.

Gold Coast

We are proposing to include a technical specification for an alternative main DRMT site at Lower Beechmont. The proposal to include the technical specification in the Gold Coast DRCP is part of the planning arrangements we put in place to facilitate the rollout of digital radio services in the Gold Coast RA1 licence area.

We welcome comments from stakeholders on the proposals set out in the consultation paper.
