Bunbury 103.7 has now purchased their own tower and transmitter site. This new site is 230m west of our previous CipherTel tower. The new tower site is also 10m higher above sea. The tower is over 50m high and our new antennae has been installed.
The new antennae is designed to amplify our broadcast signal by a factor of four. On Sunday 30th April our transmitter was relocated to the new site and turned on reaching up to 1.7 kW which is then amplified up to 7 kW by the new antennae. This has made a significant difference to our broadcast signal strength and should be much easier to pickup with your car and household radios.
Exciting times for Bunbury Community Radio. Let us know your feedback about the knew signal strength.
The new antennae has now been installed thanks to Malcolm Ashworth pictured here in the man cage. A long days work. Check out our facebook page for a video of the installation process.
