2CC Off Air [Sorta]

By Samuel Gordon-Stewart - 10 November 2005 56

A few minutes ago 2CC (1206 AM) disappeared from the Canberra airwaves…or at least the ones in my house, can somebody else confirm this please?

During the 3PM news 2CC suddenly dropped out and went to static which makes me think the transmitter has failed…all my radios say the same thing.

Love them or hate them, any TV or radio station just “disappearing” from the airwaves is a major issue.

Edit: Never mind, they fixed it…sort of…keeps cutting out though.

What’s Your opinion?

They got the address wrong…if they got it right I would have been on the phone to a lawyer right away.

Yes, well I am gathering opinions on it before deciding whether I need to take action or not. The fact that their last go at me is already on Page 2 of a google search for my name is a mild worry…especially when future employers could easily google me…but I think they are nuts anyway so I don’t care all that much.

They certainly don’t seem to be holding back any. They say any publicity is good publicity, but I must admit I would be less than enthusiastic about having that sort of thing on the web in reference to me – even if it was sending hits to my blog.

995 page views and counting (and that’s only the people with a browser supporting javascript). To put that in perspective, that is almost more than the total for the rest of this month.

I most certainly have. I’m sure it is defamation, but I find it surprisingly twisted and amusing that they could get so worked up about me.

Jey 5:05 pm 10 Nov 05

I’m sure that’s breaking some form of defamation laws

It was John Howard’s fault. Something to do with the workplace relations reforms and anti-terrorism laws.

When I originally posted that I was suspecting a problem which could leave them off air for hours.

The frequency was provided so that people could check if it was just me or 2CC really was off air…which for some people here, not including me, would induce parties in the street.

“In the interest of good taste, this station has been permanently removed from the airwaves.”

At least I now know where to find it….1206 AM heh?

Don’t get my hopes up like that, Samuel. The first part of your opening sentence is a real tease.

Samuel Gordon-Stewar 3:32 pm 10 Nov 05

They were off air for 15 minutes and have acknowledged it…an interesting “oops”.
