Rural Radio

This petition of certain concerned citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the House that the receiver strength of ABC Radio National broadcasts in Armidale are not acceptable given the distances of a rural area; fading out with different ranges from the town boundary, from 10 to 25 kms. These broadcasts are currently on 720 AM.

We therefore ask the House to request that the appropriate bodies (i) strengthen the AM broadcasting to an acceptable level, or (ii) change the broadcasts to FM if that is what is required .

from 140 citizens (Petition No. PN0408)
