URGENT - ABC SHORTWAVE SERVICE STOPPED

 ABC SHORTWAVE SERVICE STOPPED 31st January 2017

The ABC has stopped its shortwave radio service as of 31st January. This means that information about emergency situations, weather conditions, general news and entertainment will no longer be available in remote areas in situations where AM/FM, digital and satellite services are ineffective, but shortwave has worked . It will affect people who are working and travelling remotely in the top two thirds of SA and in to the NT.

If 4WD members are going to be affected by this decision can you please ring the ABC on one of the following numbers and leave a complaint.

1300 13 9994 or 139994.

Whilst the ABC has offered ideas about transitional arrangements with the stopping of shortwave, feedback from users of shortwave in these areas say the proposed arrangements will be ineffective and we are calling for restoration of the short wave service.

Sue Pinnock
President, Friends of the ABC SA/NT
