2GN says goodbye to AM transmission


2GN is saying goodbye to AM transmission.

Tomorrow (Friday, May 13) will see 2GN move to its new home on the Radio dial as GNFMFM 107.7.

It will be one of the biggest changes in the 90-year-old history of the Goulburn based station.

GNFM 107.7 is a part of the Capital Radio Network and has been under its ownership for the past 32 years.

“Our loyal listeners will be able to access our music and programs they know and love in FM Stereo quality” says Josh Matthews, General Manager of GNFM.

“There are now more options than ever to listen to GNFM with FM Radio, online sites and apps, smart phones and speakers.”

The move to FM is part of the Capital Radio Network continuing investment to roll out FM across the network providing better reception and sound.

Listeners in Goulburn and surrounds will need to retune their radios as of Friday and switch to FM 107.7, while Crookwell listeners can continue to listen on FM 106.1.

Started my career at 2GN in 1981. Great memories.

107.7 is the same frequency as triple M gosford (2GO)

Yes Michael, co channel interference aplenty in summer and all year round in many elevated places.

2GO often a summer visitor along the Hume through Goulburn, Gunning and towards Jugiong.

Likewise south toward Tarago, Bungendore and Braidwood.

That will all reduce the coverage area within the Goulburn licence area.

2GN was better off converting to the RN planned allocation and RN moving to a vacant medium power allocation.

Why ACMA allow this sloppy planning is due to the commercial sector dictating the process as ACMA planning staff are a shadow of their size only a few years ago.

That’s what I was wondering Michael- I’m a big radio listener but not too well up technically– I’m curious as to how 2 stations at different ends of the state can both use the same frequency!

Completely agree with Eleanor, ACMA made a stupid decision allocating 107.7 to GNFM.

There are much better frequencies that could have been used. 96.7 is currently used by a community radio station in Queanbeyan that is only on a temporary licence. ACMA could have moved them to another frequency to give GNFM 96.7. Then there would be no co channel interference issues with Triple M Central Coast.

Also in summer Eagle fm comes into Sydney quite strong at times too. So GNFM has the potential to cause interference with Triple M Gosford. Very bad planning all round.

@Ant you want to move the community radio station to another frequency so you can have ” your”station??
You obviously DONT listen to community radio.

Many broadcasters today started out on community radio
