7MIDfm 97.1 - Lost transmission due to an unknown fault

On New Year's Eve the radio station, 7MIDfm 97.1,  lost transmission due to an unknown fault.  On New Year's Day a vital component was replaced and transmission resumed, although signal was breaking up at times.

Transmission was lost once again on Tuesday. The problem was a broken cable from the transmitter to the tower. This is a major problem and the station remains off air. Damage to other components is unknown at this stage. 

We have arranged a temporary solution which will allow a resumption of service by FRIDAY AFTERNOON, but with a reduced coverage. 

Restoration of full service could take several weeks.  

Advice received for community notification from John Hay, Station Manager
