2RPH Info

The initials RPH in our call sign stand for Radio for the Print Handicapped of NSW. We are a special purpose radio station, with more than half our funding supplied by Government sources. We have memberships, fund raising and sponsorships. There’s no other radio station quite like an RPH station! ... See more n! 2RPH provides a radio reading service for people who cannot see, handle or understand printed material. We do so in one way or another for 17 hours a day. That’s the sole reason we’re here. There are 7 RPH stations around Australia (Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Hobart). We are also associated with the Radio Reading Service of New Zealand. Radio for the Print Handicapped of NSW has been broadcasting in Sydney since April 1983 and from the Glebe studios since May 2000. * 2RPH has three transmitters (Prospect, Mount Sugarloaf and Kings Cross) and can be heard on 1224 AM and 100.5 FM in the Sydney area, and on 100.5 FM in the Newcastle and the Lower Hunter region. * The station is on air 24 hours each day. The three studios and a production suite are in operation from 6am to 11pm each day. Programs from the BBC are broadcast from 11pm to 6am, and each day between 11am and 11:30am for World Briefing. * Volunteers prepare, produce and present all the programs. Items from the day’s newspapers are read live by volunteers. * A great many people in the Sydney and throughout NSW who have difficulty seeing, handling, or understanding printed material. They include people with impaired vision, or people who often can't hold a newspaper because of physical disabilities caused by strokes, arthritis, cerebral palsy, etc. Without a radio reading service, they wouldn't be able to access a wide range of information of vital importance to them in their daily lives. 2RPH provides these people with the opportunity to know what’s in the daily newspapers or in magazines and books – and they can access all this information simply by switching on their radio. * Listeners also include people from a non-English speaking background. The Adult Migrant Education Service (AMES) uses 2RPH broadcasts as a teaching aid. Announcing the page number of the paper on which an item appears enables students learning English to follow the item being read. * Many people listen to 2RPH while they are driving, or working at home or at business, simply because they enjoy the programming. Some hospitals and nursing homes broadcast 2RPH through their 'in-house' systems.
