It has been an exciting first day of Radiothon. Thanks to your generosity, and a one of our very special matching donors who doubled every donation, we were able to blast past the 10% mark before 10am this morning!
This means that today we could place an order for a new backup transmitter. Our back up transmitter is a crucial piece of equipment. Without the back up, we would be vulnerable to weather and power issues taking us off air and it means we can continue to broadcast even if the main transmitter is having maintenance issues. Basically, it ensures there is never a moment in which we are not broadcasting.
If you’re curious, this it what the transmitter looks like.
The unit we are replacing was over 20 years old, and it’s safe to say, it was on it’s last legs. So we thank you Family, we’re so grateful to everyone who has supported our Radiothon so far. Because of you over 462,000 people every month will always be able to tune into 98five, hope will be broadcast across Perth and beyond, rain, hail or shine!
