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.
Japan's whaling justification labelled inadequate
Japan submitted a revised whaling plan to the commission, stating 330 Minke whales should be killed annually for the next 12 years for scientific purposes.
The expert panel found no scientific justification for continuing lethal research whaling in the Southern Ocean and encouraged non-lethal means of examining whale populations.
