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.
Australia Post prices rising again
Despite the online shopping boom, from the March 2 posting a prepaid 5kg parcel in Australia will cost from 30c to 55c more, return paid parcels will rise by up to 85c, and customers posting parcels in their own packaging will be charged 25c to 45c more.
Australia Post is blaming its ailing letters business as well as higher delivery and transport costs, for the rise in prices and spokeswoman Michelle Skehan says, “we know that price increases are never easy for our customers and we take the decision to implement these cost recovery measures very seriously.”
