Need more stations, need frequencies...

Does Wikipedia need this page?[edit]

Does a list of Radio Frequencies really belong in an encyclopedia? Does this mean that we need a full ist for the entir world?

This seems inappropriate to me.

P Dixon

This is not a list of radio frequencies; this is a list of radio stations in Australia; just like there's a List of Australian television channels. There are also already articles about Australian radio stations and the companies that own them, yet nowhere where they're centrally linked from. Thus this page.
The Wikipedia is more like "The Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy" than the "Encyclopedia Galactica". matturn 10:55, 19 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It might make more sense to add a category for the national stations. --Rlandmann 06:13, 5 Apr 2004 (UTC)

I might also merge the AM and FM lists for each city, into one. The AM or FM status of each can be determined by the frequency, and having AM and FM separate just makes an unnecessarily cluttered TOC. --Chuq 05:26, 7 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Australian Broadcasting Authority lists[edit]

This web page provides radio stations by post code:-

I have deleted the PDF website address because when I visited it I got a Page cannot be found

I see that ABA is now know as the ACMA (Australian Communications and Media Authority).



Defunct Radio Stations/Frequencies[edit]

Is there anywhere where these might go? I can think of the ABC Shortwave service and in WA - 6KY and a few others - any suggestions? SatuSuro 09:31, 17 October 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

External Linking[edit]

After a discussion with VS talk he suggested that I come to this page about the issue of External Linking

I'm raising the issue, because there are a lot of links on here that are to the actual radio stations websites, in cases of not having a Wikipedia article

The basic understanding I have is, that external linking isn't really allowed, yet the situation I raised above is still there. From what I've been told, it might be due to the amount of advertising selling products actually on that site, that is not allowed to be linked from here

As I'm trying to add an external link to Darwin's 92.3 Top Country, which has been disallowed twice, the question is, Are all the other external links on the page in breach of what we're making here with the page?

If it's not in breach, then if an external link for other towns is allowed, why not for Darwin? (talk) 14:13, 10 December 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Seeing you have had not reply for several days - I would suggest you re-add your link to the page and use "see discussion on talk page" as a part of your edit summary. That will bring others to here to agree with you or otherwise.--VS talk 06:16, 16 December 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Digital Radio[edit]

This page is going to need some reworking with digital radio coming soon. I suggest a table format, similar to the list of foxtel channels page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:54, 15 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

this list is full of missing details. why not lismore, byron bay, ballina? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Payneham (talkcontribs) 06:12, 10 June 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why Darling Downs (Toowoomba / Warwick)[edit]

The two cities are 80km apart and don't share many stations.

Or, conversely, include other regional listings, like Oakey and Dalby under the banner.

Separate Repeater Section?[edit]

Was having a quick play around with the ACT today, thought it'd be better to separate Tuggers & Canberra. Any thoughts?

Also translated?[edit]

What does this mean: "Also translated"? Should it be transmitted, broadcast, or re-broadcast?
wcrosbie, Melbourne, Australia 23:50, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

I have to agree there, translated is rather incorrect, because when you have a situation like (for example, 95.5 K-rock Geelong has another transmitter at Werribee on the same frequency), then it's called a retransmission or a repeater. Correct? Wally Otto (talk) 02:30, 7 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Slow Progress[edit]

I'm working on putting all these lists into tables as well as updating outdated information. It's slow going though sadly. Kodi Jay Smith (talk) 20:25, 13 August 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
