Perth ABC changes.
It seems that the Wanneroo Perth ABC transmitter site is up for sale. This is part of a plan to move the Perth ABCs to FM (presumably from the Bickley transmitter site). No idea when this might happen though. From what I have been able to determine ABC Perth 720, RN 810 and NewsRadio 585 will be allocated 103.3, 104.1 and 104.9 (though in what order I don’t know). As part of this 6SEN 101.7 will also relocate to Bickley and get a power increase from 8 to 16kW.
It appears the FM transition of 6IX and 6PR to FM will be delayed after objections from the existing FM commercial stations.
Unluckily the Perth band plan matches that of Sydney so no chance of 2Es from here to receive them.
