The first half of the 42m radio tower is up at Granite Park on Saturday.


Seymour FM’s giant radio tower is up — what it now needs is some public help.

The 42m tower was installed at Granite Park on Saturday, and once operational it will enable the radio station to reach much further than before.

It is hoped to be operational by June, with just underground power from the road gate to be connected.

Once that is done, reception should be crystal clear to north of Nagambie and a similar distance away north along the Hume Fwy.

Seymour FM president Ted Gray said grants paid for about half the $30000 project, with donations helping fund some of the remainder.

But members have also loaned money to the station to ensure the project went ahead, and this will have to be repaid.

‘‘We would be grateful for further donations to help us out,’’ Mr Gray said.

If you can help, phone Mr Gray on 0414337024.
