ABC Radio tower falls

The ABC’s AM Radio tower in Brandon North Queensland was taken down this month, and will soon be replaced by a new mast.

After seeing ABC Radio through storms, cyclones and floods, the old AM Tower is getting an upgrade.

Once completed, the tower, which is located south of Twonsville and north of Ailie Beach, will be more resilient to the challenging local weather conditions in the region.

From 21 July to early November 2020 a temporary tower will provide the ongoing signal to most listeners, but if, during this time listener signal astrength is impacted, here are a number of alternative ways  to listen to ABC North Queensland:

Townsville: 91.1 FM

Cardwell: 100.1 FM

Charters Towers: 100.1 FM

Donald Di Marzio recorded the monent the tower fell, posted on Twitter by Tom Major.
