Have some observations.
Hobarts Heart FM 107.3 and 101.7 FM 7HO were very similar in format. I was tuned in to 7HO most often. Played some modern music, found it played more unusual oldies than on Heart. Despite this ,I was surprised how similar they were to one another. I found that ABC local radio 938 am coverage was a bit poor in the southport area. I was thinking it might be worthwhile to convert the AM services to FM. The ABC , JJJ, ABC had better coverage. The power from 936 AM could not match 702 AM/ 576 AM coverage.
Only one commercial station ??? Why? How can places like Goulborn/ Lithgow get 2 commercial channel? LA FM did play a wide mix of music! 89.3 FM. That might be the lowest commercial freq (high power ) in Australia . I was impressed by the coverage of the ABC FM reception over north Eastern tassie. I could listen to newsradio almost everywhere.
7SD 540 am proved a best mix jingle on AM is a different format than FM stations with the similar a jingle , AM stations do play an older mix.
My favourite station in Tasmania was a community one (Star FM) in St Helens and St Marys. It just played a great variety of music from 60s today. Even played some African music! It was great. Anyone listen to it before??
