Shaun has a strong technical team with radio broadcast and computer engineering knowledge that brings much needed support to the IT department.


Our board is made up of volunteers who all contribute their time to help with the overall responsibility and governance of the station.  From talking to the CBAA or Office of Fair Trading, right through to working out how we can obtain grants from certain areas, the board acts in the best interest of the station and the members at all times.

Board members are elected for two-year terms, and we hold an election at every annual general meeting for either three or four of the positions.
