“As a benefit to financial members we are trying to negotiate a discount on copyright fees with APRA. To get this discount a member will have to opt in to allow their membership to be disclosed to APRA.

Please indicate by answering [YES] if you would be agreeable.
Or [NO] if you do not agree.

Note that only those who say [YES] could have
their details passed to APRA, and be eligible for the discount”

More to come on this.

17 Sep 2015: The Society has decided that it doesn’t want to be a de facto policeman for APRA, and this proposal has been quietly dropped, for the time being.

Waiheke Radio Grand Opening

Waiheke Radio’s new studio will be officially opened on Sat 4th June with a community open day and ribbon cutting ceremony and we’d love it if you came along.

We’ve spent much of this year developing ‘The White House’ at 4 Korora Rd, formerly a one bedroom residence, into a functioning radio station.

The open day runs from 10am to 2pm with the Waiheke Local Board  presiding at the official opening ceremony at 10.30am. You’re all invited to come along for tours of the station and the opportunity to  record station identification clips that will be used on-air. There will also be a free sausage sizzle and live music throughout the morning. The opening and performances will also be broadcast.

We’re also inviting community groups to visit the station and discuss how they can have  their services and events given free coverage. The station also plans to  run a training programme for new volunteers in coming months and this is  an ideal opportunity for people to come along and find out what is  involved.

Waiheke Radio is Waiheke Islands community radio station that transmits on 88.3 and 107.4 under the Low Power FM GURL. LPFM was the only viable option for Waiheke after Waiheke based frequencies were snapped up in the radio spectrum frequency tender by Auckland based radio stations and now beam back to east Auckland from Ridgeview Estate on Waiheke.

Waiheke Radio has an enviable record of broadcasting around 40 hours a week of local programming.

There are many lpfm transmitters advertised on places like trade me with outputs of up to 15 and 20 watts. Unless the output strength is adjustable enabling you to reduce your output from the antenna to 1watt e.r.i.p. stay clear. The lpfm bands in NZ are guard bands that is why they are positioned at the bottom and top ends of the fm band. The top set of frequencies especially are a buffer between high power broadcasters and the aviation band.
