Waiheke Radio Frequencies
Written by Chris on June 26, 2010
Following a review of Low Power FM broadcasting regulations some Waiheke radio stations have changed frequencies this week.
Waiheke Radio stays on our existing frequencies, 88.3 and 107.4fm while Onetangi radio station Splash FM now broadcasts on 87.6fm and 107fm in Ostend, while Waiheke Wireless, operated by the Lazy Lounge in Oneroa, has shifted to 88.0fm.
The changes will be positive for listeners of all three stations as the new regulations have allowed the stations to have greater separation between frequencies, so there is less risk of interference.
The change also means Waiheke Radio may cover areas that we didn’t before. If you haven’t been able to pick up the station before, particularly in Onetangi, you should give it another go.
Reception will still be greatly improved by use of an aerial. Inexpensive wire aerials are available at many electronic goods stores.
