Radio Reception

The community radio licence issued by the Australian Communications and Media Authority requires us to restrict the strength of our broadcast signal. If you live some distance from our transmitter at Caulfield, reception will be improved with a vertical external antenna.

If your radio has a telescopic aerial, extend it fully. Moving the radio to another part of the room may also improve reception.
We broadcast all programs in stereo, but if your radio has a mono/stereo switch, switching it to “mono” may reduce the background noise.

Golden Days Radio has prepared an information sheet “Tips for Better Reception” and is available on request or can be downloaded here.
