The Community Broadcasting Foundation paid us a Visit

From the Community Broadcasting Foundation.

Our friends at 88.9FM – Braidwood were amongst the first community stations at the front-line of emergency broadcast updates over the recent summer bushfires. They sustained a mighty service providing crucial updates to their local communities in and around the Budawang National Park and Mongo National Park in the Southern Tablelands of NSW – for two months! It was a huge job from a small team of volunteer broadcasters who, even when the station lost power, were able to stay on air, thanks to a battery-back up purchased with a Community Broadcasting Foundation grant.

Our current grant round closes this Tuesday, March 10th. It’s not too late to submit!

Congrats to all at Braidwood FM for your incredible efforts over summer. Here’s Station Manager, Gordon Waters, a key part of the broadcast team, on the gear that helped them with their bushfire broadcasting.
