Big sound coming for Wujal Wujal

Wujal TowersIt was a good day to open the mail: advice from the Indigenous Broadcasting Program that they would fund the relocation of the antenna and transmitter at Wujal Wujal!

The IBP acted very promptly following our advice that the current tower was in danger of collapse due to rusted guy cables and they have provided funding to relocate to the Telstra Tower on the hill.

This new position will increase the coverage of Wujal Wujal Radio 107.7fm, to better service all of the community and now reach the smaller surrounding towns. It will also reach locals and tourists travelling on the rainforest roads from Daintree and Cape Tribulation.

It’s a big job ahead for QRAM , including dismantling the old tower . QRAM plans to have the work completed by June 2013.

Big thanks to Bill McGinnis and Cameron Logue in the IBP office at the Department Of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy.
