Re: FM Translators - Why?
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Here (Tasmania) they serve two main purposes:
- To provide coverage in areas the main transmitter does not reach. As an example, our main transmitter site for FM radio is Mt Barrow, this provides a great signal across a wide area but as our CBD is in a valley, due to this they have translators in the CBD for our two commercial FM stations.
- In some rural areas, they have a translator of the local AM station to also provide a signal for those that don't have an AM radio.
