To hear what is happening in the Burdekin, tune your radio to Radio 97.1 Sweet FM – broadcasting since 28th September 1999, 24 hours a day, seven days a week via a transmitter on Mt. Inkerman and from the studio in the Home Hill Court House Building, 134/136 Eighth Avenue, Home Hill.
The station is manned by a dedicated band of volunteers with each volunteer choosing the music they wish to present on their programme, and staying within the bounds of the “Easy Listening” Policy. The ratio of music to talk is 80/20.
Listeners were invited to a 10th Anniversary Open Day in 2009 and were welcomed to visit the studio to observe how the station functions.
The volunteers pride themselves on their dedication throughout natural disasters and during Cyclones Anthony and Yasi in 2011 and were able to stay live to air keeping listeners up to date with the very latest information as it came to hand.
