Apollo Bay Radio has ceased its FM test transmission, although you can still listen to all your favourite top quality programmes online at 3abr.org. We turned the transmitter off because the Media Authority has decreed it unlawful for us to broadcast, despite the fact that Apollo Bay has no Community Radio service.
There are several petitions dotted around town which we will send to the House of Representatives. You will find them at the newsagents, farmers' market, golf club, sailing club, to name just a few. Please support your right and enjoyment to have an Apollo Bay Community Radio - support us to support you! The 3ABR team have been in touch with MPs and we have had a positive response from Sarah Henderson who is hoping she will be able to convince ACMA to grant us a licence. We have also lobbied all the Colac Otway councillors as well as ACMA themselves.
A complaint against our test broadcast was NOT based on any interference to another signal. The frequency 88.7 FM is allocated to Apollo Bay and was not being used by the Colac based licence holder.
Please also fill out the ACMA Complaint Form and tell them that the only local radio content you want comes from Apollo Bay itself. We already have a dedicated team of local Apollo Bay people who are committed to bringing you local Apollo Bay content (not from Colac) and have been broadcasting online 24/7 for about a year already. See full details and listen live at 3abr.org.
We thank you for your support....The 3ABR Team.
Apollo Bay's ONLY Community Radio.
