leave a comment »

Wednesday 5 February 1936, The Sydney Morning Herald


2AD (Armidale) commences its trans-
missions to-night. The station will operate
on a frequency of 1080 kilocycles (278 metres),
which is the same channel as that used by
3SH (Swan Hill, Victoria). It is two channels
above 2UW (Sydney) and three below 2CA
(Canberra). A sister station, 2LV (Inverell)
will be opened in a few weeks.

Both stations, which are owned and ope-
rated by Northern Broadcasters, Ltd., have
been built by Standard Telephones and Cables
(Australasia), Ltd. Hitherto this company
has been concerned more with high-power
transmitters, having supplied the equipment
for all the National regional stations from
2NC onwards.

The opening ceremony at 2AD will be per-
formed by the Minister for Education (Mr.
Drummond). The power is 100 watts.
