We are pleased to announce Wellington CBD coverage with service out towards Kilbirnie and Rongotai. The frequency for these areas is 107.0 MHz. All AREC FM transmitters now have RDS with the Alternative Frequency (AF) option to enable RDS equipped receivers to automatically retune to our different frequencies as you drive around the greater Wellington…
As part of our programme to improve coverage the Waikanae transmitter is now on 87.9 MHz, this is to avoid co-channel interference in parts of Paraparaumu.
Please note that the Time Pips from the BBC are delayed a few seconds or so due to network delays from the UK to our transmitters.
We’re testing RDS on the Waikanae transmitter. Note that we transmit a mono service only.
Welcome to AREC FM at the bottom of the FM dial. This new website replaces the original site at Waikanae.live which outlived it usefulness. We’ve just concluded arrangements for carrying the BBC World Service and we will be transmitting this shortly. Stay tuned!
