We regret to advise our listeners that there will be a brief interruption in transmission today (Tuesday 14th February) at approximately 6:30pm to allow for some vital works at our transmitter site.
The back up generator has been fully serviced and is ready to be reinstalled at the transmitter site. To ensure the safety of the workers we need to cut the mains power supply for approximately 30 minutes.
3MDR's volunteers have been working on securing back up power supplies at the transmitter site to ensure 3MDR can stay on the air during power outages. More works are planned in the future, such as installing a larger fuel tank for the generator and a new batteries for the Uninterrupted Power Supply unit. We hope that when these works are completed 3MDR will no longer be off the air during power outages.
We apologise for this interruption to broadcasting during The Music Garden. 3MDR will be available through our website live stream and today's episode of The Music Garden will be archived for playback through the Music Garden show page.
We would like to thank all of the 3MDR subscribers and sponsors for supporting the station......the transmitter works is just one of the ongoing projects your subscription and sponsorship dollars help to fund.

Belgrave Survival Day 2017 was again a great success, with approximately 1000+ people in attendance at this fabulous community event.

With all the current conversations and interest in January 26th, it will be very interesting to see what is in store for 2018.

Attention 3MDR listeners...
Unfortunately our transmitter has to be completely turned off between 9am and 1pm on Thursday 1st December.
This situation is entirely out of our control and we are hoping the required works won't take the full four hours.
We will still be streaming live on 3mdr.com and all the shows will be available to listen back to via their program pages.
We apologise in advance and will notify everyone via Facebook as soon as we are back on air!
Thank-you for your understanding.
