Evidencing Community Radio Needs on FM

The Community Media Association is conducting a survey to gauge the potential interest of community media projects that aspire to obtain a full-time 5-year community radio licence on FM. This survey will close in early January 2020.

It is expected that licensing for small-scale digital audio broadcasting will begin in 2020 which will bring forward increased opportunities for community radio stations to broadcast on the new digital platform. However, we are investigating the level of residual demand to broadcast on analogue spectrum from aspiring community radio stations.
