New Antennae for TygaFM

It is with great joy that we can announce that our new Antennae will soon be erected at our allocated site on Peppermint Hill. This will increase our broadcast range to reach further up the Derwent Valley areas that have not been able to receive us. The components are in close proximity to New Norfolk and we are only waiting for the final word from DV Council for construction to proceed.

New web site

Posted by on Aug 27, 2013 in Website | Comments Off on New web site

Hi all, I have set up a new TYGA-FM web site using a Content Management System (CMS) to modernise it. This allows us to take advantage of professionally designed templates and allow easier database maintenance of the content. The content came from the old site and from Rozzie. Please have a look at it at and email me at if you spot any errors or inconsistencies, thanks.
