Low Power FM broadcasters are broadcasting services whose reception is limited by transmission power (under 500mW) and reception area. These services can be received on standard radio sets but according to MED specifications are available on guard band frequencies only. These services are generally funded by limited advertising or sponsorship.
This licence now includes the option for Low Power Radio transmission via Internet simulcast.The applicable fees for both options are as follows:
Non-Commercial low power radio transmission
$255.12 per annum (plus GST)*
Non-Commercial low power radio transmission plus internet simulcast
$459.21 per annum (plus GST)
*The annual rate set out above is current from 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2013
It is envisaged that such stations should be non commercial and use advertising for cost recovery purposes only. However, the licence allows very limited revenue collection by the broadcaster - up to $10,000 per year.
We do not expect LPFM broadcasters to supply play list information although we retain the right to ask them to do so if necessary.
Each station will provide a declaration each year stating that they did not collect more than $10,000 in revenue.
