The Townsville Community Broadcasting Company Limited is the licensee of Radio Station 103.9 Triple t. It broadcasts from a 20,000 watt transmitter on Mount Stuart and was Townsville’s first FM station, going to air in 1982 as 4ttt-fm. In August 2006 the station changed its on air name to 103.9 ... See more Triple t with the slogan of “Unforgettable”, an indication of the music and memories we play. The Station's licence enables it to serve the communities of Townsville, Burdekin and Hinchinbrook. The service area includes the towns of Ayr, Home Hill and Ingham, a population of approximately 250,000. Triple t operates with a paid staff of 2 and almost 100 volunteers who contribute to the everyday running of the station. Triple t caters for a listening audience far broader than pop–oriented commercial radio. Its strength is its diversity. Programming includes jazz, blues, folk, country, nostalgia and classical music and also a strong commitment to ethnic broadcasting. Volunteers present one hundred and thirty eight hours airtime per week. Suitably qualified volunteers carry out the entire technical operations of the Station, which also provides a training ground for other volunteers. The Station functions with very limited funding. The main source of funding is paid sponsorship from local business firms. The Station is allowed to sell up to five minutes sponsorship per hour. The Station broadcasts ‘live and local’ 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, delivering programs and information to the entire community, not only in English but also in up to 10 other languages through our International Sunday Program which runs Sunday from noon til 9pm. It recognises its obligation to deliver community services at any and all times, especially during periods of emergency and natural disasters. One significant service by the Station to the community is during our rainy cyclone season. This period of the year can be fraught with power outages and the Station, with its emergency power guaranteed, continues to service the community via emergency and special announcements. The main source of vital community information during emergencies for people in their homes and offices is battery driven transistor radios, many of which stay tuned to Triple t for information. As a further service to the community, Triple t broadcasts messages for other not-for-profit organisations and groups, free of charge, seven times a day. Letters of thanks would suggest this service is well accepted and successful. We also offer community groups a time slot where they can come in to the Station and discuss their interests or activities in our program - “Sundown” which goes to air week nights from 6.30-8pm after the simulcast of the Local News. This program has already proved a big hit with hundreds of groups already taking advantage of the time. Triple t also offers a ‘Lost and Found’ service, which is broadcast live four times a day, helping to reconnect people with their lost pets or articles. The success rate is remarkable. One of the Station goals in our service to the community is to offer up to date training to our staff and volunteers. Community radio has become the recruiting ground for both the ABC and commercial radio, which reflects the training standards Community Stations such as Triple t have achieved. Regular information nights for would-be volunteer presenters are held with training provided to successful applicants. In summary, it can be said with confidence that Triple t has been and continues to be an important element in the region’s social and cultural life.
