Thanks for tuning in to Compass FM. Here’s some photos from our Christmas 2012 Gathering.
Keep an ear open for more great new features in the near future, and if you’ve got an idea for a programme that needs to be heard, remember that we’re an access radio station — here to bring great local programmes to the world.
Compass FM officially hit the airwaves on Queen’s Birthday — June 6th — and we hosted a party to mark the occasion. Government minister and local MP Kate Wikinson did the honours by welcoming New Zealand’s newest radio station to the local media scene, and guests included local celebrity cook Jo Seagar, local mayors Winton Dalley and David Ayers, and many of the generous individuals and organisations who helped us to get going.
Well, can you? We’ve installed our shiny new transmitter on Mt Grey, and begun test transmissions. Now we want to find out who can hear us, and where. Tune your radios to 104.9 FM and see if you can hear us. We’re broadcasting a fairly random selection of music while we tweak the equipment, but don’t let endless Strauss waltzes, André Previn or the Mutton Birds stop you trying us out.
Please add a comment here if you can hear the Compass FM signal: time and place and some details of the radio would be very helpful. We’re particularly interested in finding out how far we can be heard into the northern Hurunui, up State Highways 1 & 6 and into the foothills.
