Waikato 105FM reception issues:
Two years ago significant storm damage occurred to Coast’s Waikato transmission tower.
Remediation work is now underway to repair the damage. This includes strengthening the remaining tower and adding a new “top half” where the antennas will be re-located.
As the work is dangerous and weather dependent there will continue to be on-going outages and our broadcasts may at times be on low power which means that the frequency coverage area is reduced.
This work will continue until late November but will result in improved full power coverage again.
We apologise for the interruptions to your listening and hope you will remain listening to Coast despite the reception difficulties.
