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.
