WHAT’S BEEN HAPPENING
Village Radio – Tauranga
It was good to have a recent visit from some of the crew from our sister radio station, Village Radio. After a chat on air the three visitors toured the old Cranmer building that we are currently occupying. Then it was a tour through the nearly completed Society building. They were very impressed with all the work that the ‘working bee’ and other affiliated members have carried out in the past few years. It was surprising how many differences and similarities the two organisations had. Photos in our members next publication of the In Tune newsletter

Presently we operate from the Council’s Cranmer Building, with our Museum of Sound and Radio displays and studio broadcasting on 1413 Radio Ferrymead.
We are open to the public between 10am and 3pm Saturdays and Sundays. Come in and visit us at Ferrymead Heritage Park.
Radio Preservation Society Building
This building will become the new home of the Radio Preservation Society and Radio Ferrymead.
Due to an ever decreasing funds for the new building project, we are splitting the museum area into two areas, Gallery and Display.
We will complete the Gallery area first, while the other half of the area can be used as storage.
The overhead connection from our new studios to our distant transmitter site is a little closer to completion with the decaying telephone pole, crucial to the connection, having been replaced. Hopefully work can progress soon towards wiring Radio Ferrymead up for broadcasting from the new studios.
