Around 1998 4ZZZ, 4MBS, and Family Radio started broadcasting from the one installation at Mt Coot-tha. Prior to this 4MBS and Family Radio had merely leased land beside 4ZZZ but then Brisbane City Council decided that having three transmission towers and huts in the one place was an eyesore and encouraged the three radio stations to share facilities. This resulted in the three radio stations developing a company called Broadcasting Park to negotiate with the Council. This company consisted of three shares, one owned by each member station.
New papaya treatment to save Qld growers thousands
The technique involves dipping fruit into tubs of heated water, with the best results achieved when papaya is submerged in 52 degree water for five minutes.
About a third of Queensland's wet season papaya crop is lost to post-harvest diseases, costing farmers thousands of dollars in lost production.
The treatment is not yet available in Australia, but local growers are reportedly very interested.
