ACT digital radio (all channels) over North Canberra (at least) went down at lunchtime on Saturday 30 June and was not restored until Sunday 1 July. It went down again just after 10.00 on Monday 2 July until 11.40. There appear to have been no statements issued about the outages.
Why was nothing said?
Isn’t digital radio supposed to be replacing analogue completely?
Will digital radio then carry emergency communications?
If all local channels can go down simultaneously, doesn’t that represent a serious system design shortcoming?
If it takes 24 hours to rectify a problem at a weekend, doesn’t that represent a serious system management shortcoming?
Does anybody care?
