Scottsdale residents may soon have to change the dial, if a new proposal from 7SD Scottsdale is accepted by the Australian Communications and Media Authority.
As part of an industry-led conversion program, the ACMA is assessing the proposal for 7SD Scottsdale to simulcast on both an FM transmission and an AM transmission.
This means some listeners could be required to switch radio frequencies in order to listen to the station.
“ACMA will facilitate a conversion if we are satisfied that audiences in regional areas do not lose important radio services under the proposal,” ACMA chairwoman Nerida O’Loughlin said.
Members of the public are invited to make submissions on the proposals to the ACMA by July 5.
