I don’t think I have ever heard the Adelaide commercial FM’s mention their Adelaide Foothills frequencies. I doubt many actually listen to those and not sure how needed they actually are.
Southern Cross Austereo (Regional)
A blast from the past for the ex-LocalWorks stations.
I can remember 96.9 Sun FM which became Star and a few other variants from the Goulburn Valley use to promote their other frequency 93.7 on Mt Buller. They would run live broadcasts from there in the ski season. To this day Hit and Triple M Goulburn Valley have seperate frequencies at Mt Buller with a studio in Mansfield i think. But it is never mentioned on air which seems a waste
I’m pretty certain, when Nova 919 first launched, they also mentioned 99.1 in the foothills, but those were very short lived. I know the SCA/ARN stations in Canberra used to mention their “in the valley” frequencies, referring to the Tuggeranong valley.
The Mt Buller frequencies have relocated to Mansfield. There’s no studio in Mansfield.
93.7 is one of the few examples of an FM SFN in Australia. It also has translators near Alexandra and Yea. It was originally setup this way so that the traffic to Mt Buller could get a constant signal all the way from Seymour to Mt Buller. In practice there’s actually a few patches of interference along the highway. Quite possibly because the move from the Mt Buller site to The Paps (Mansfield) has shifted the mush zone.
It’s sounding to me like Triple M Central Coast are now taking the Albury/Gold Coast (not sure which location) hub feed on weekdays now?
have for a few months
Which positioner is Triple M Central Coast using these days?
Is it the same playlist & positioner as Newcastle?
If you want to shake up the Central Coast overnight (without a rebrand), just introduce “The Coast’s REAL Alternative” and take the Triple M Perth log.
Same playlist as Newcastle, different to Sydney’s.
Newcastle still local, I think the whole regional network uses the same positioner … ‘Good Times and Greatest Hits’ I think it is now?
