Thank you for visiting our site, the home of Coffs Harbour's most listened to Community radio.
2AIR is proudly a community orientated radio station playing "easy listening" music to a diverse demographic and especially enjoyed by those over 50 .Coffs Harbour is in the fortunate situation where the musical preferences of younger and more diverse music styles is catered for by 2CHY.
Our licence is based on the proviso to provide for the large population who are in their later years and enjoy music from 1940s to the the present which no other radio service caters for.
Long standing and dedicated Board member, Maureen Chambers, has had to resign from the Board of Management due to health reasons. Maureen will be greatly missed and hopefully she will be able to return to a reduced involvement in the months to come. Thank you for everything you have done. Her position on the Board has been filled by Col Daisley, a long-term member and presenter.
We have looked into the whole issue of streaming and it is a lot closer, although there are a few recent issues arising from copyright laws that may affect us. Our website will soon undergo a major makeover with streaming, Facebook, mobile-phone access included.
NEW PREMISES UPDATE
Plans are well established for the conversion of our property to become our new studios. Former Board member and Broadcast Engineer,Geoff Inwood, gave the meeting on 1 March excellent advice as to forward planning and being ready for the big changes that digital radio will bring to the area in about 4 years.
We are seeking the services of an experienced builder who can act as "site overseer" when the alterations start in about 18 months time. We are also seeking a person to lead the "Building Fund-raising Team".
OUR BROADCASTING LICENCE HAS BEEN RENEWED!!
Many many hours were spent by the President to satisfy the detailed requirements of ACMA (the government dept who issue broadcast licenses). There were a few minor areas we need to address but we were advised that our licence will be renewed at the end of 2014 for a further 5 years. As many Community radio stations have been operating on temporary licences for years, this is a most satisfying result. 2AIR has been fully licenced since 2000.
