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.
Edward Snowden may gain Icelandic citizenship
The current leader of the Icelandic Pirate Party, Birgitta Jonsdottir, is pushing for Snowden’s Icelandic citizenship, as Iceland’s changing politics now bode well in Snowden’s search for a new home.
Birgitta Jonsdottir said, “If I become the interior minister, that’s definitely happening.”
She also acknowledged under Iceland’s Nationality Act, granting citizenship to Snowden would probably require approval by parliament which has already blocked it for nearly two years.
Jonsdottir however has experience in minting new Icelandic citizens, she was a successful activist in the campaign to grant citizenship to chess champion Bobby Fischer.
