RIBS Rocket-On The Road to Elliot …
The drive to Elliot was without incident on the 13th February for the RIBS Rocket and Ted, The RIBS Roving Reporter… traffic was steady & driving quite safe. Elliot Studio is in the North Camp at Elliot … Gurungu Radio … and Jason is currently providing local broadcasts from 7:30 through to midday. I was able to present him with the TCBL licences to place on the wall, and some new & fresh posters which brightens the place even more.
Jason is able to promote events in the community and visits by service providers and he, like all RIBS Broadcasters, is available to help local members understand things that are happening by having interviews and discussions with visitors to their communities during the programs.
Broadcasting from such a remote region has its own particular issues, including musical content … its very expensive to go to the community store to buy cd’s yet there is no other choice, for both the broadcaster and other individuals, yet they do, and they pay a fairly hefty price for them, much greater than we do in the larger centres.
Jason is well supported by his family & the Community … Excellent stuff Jason, you’re doing a great job!!!
