Transmitter works

Transmitter Tower

The technical side of keeping a radio station on air is usually well hidden.

Recently we invested in totally replacing the old battery backup system on Mt. Worth. This has not been a simple task. The work is now complete, and the batteries should keep the transmitter running for well over 10 hours if there is a mains power failure. All being well, you won’t even notice.

We apologise for a recent outage that was related to this work. Please understand that it takes time, effort and money to provide a robust and reliable backup.

Meanwhile, there will be improvements to our on-air sound in the months to come. This will require some substantial rewiring and installation at the Drouin studios. We’ll let you know more, and ask for your feedback when the time comes.

Best wishes from your technical crew at 3BBR!
