QRAM Engineer Shane Gibson was busy on the job at Aurukun installing a new play out system at Black Star’s local station their. The new Zetta system supported by RCS Australia brings Aurukun’s local Black Star station into line with world’s best practices for broadcasting services.
This is part of QRAM’s policy of bringing remote radio services up to the same quality as those services in mainstream Australia – as we say “QRAM believes that people living in remote communities deserve radio services as good as those in the major towns and cities of our nation.”
Our new systems allow QRAM to guarantee reliable services for communities into the future. They mean good entertainment, news, weather and emergency services information for people throughout remote broadcast areas, interactive services with local participation supported by a strong central hub and also accurate accountability to Government and Commercial organisations that want to use radio in remote communities to deliver a ranges of messages.
Seven services in the Black Star network are now using the new systems, and our upgrade schedule continues with all due to be completed in the coming months. It’s a big job but we’re here to do it!
