Vision Radio Network - History

History

Vision began broadcasting from small studios in Springwood, Brisbane on the 1st February 1999. In 2001 the Vision Radio Network moved into larger premises in nearby Underwood to better provide a 24 hour 7 day broadcast to relay stations across the nation, plus listeners on the Internet and via satellite.

UCB Australia was able to acquire around 500 high and low powered open narrowcast licenses and quickly set up a national network of relay stations to meet the needs of listeners all over the country. Vision Radio Network reaches listeners in places ranging from Australia's larger cities to regional centres and tiny isolated towns in the bush. Many small to medium sized country towns in Australia have benefited from the cost-effective approach of using low powered FM transmitters. Although typically only one to ten watts, they usually give quite adequate residential coverage in small towns, depending on the antenna height above local terrain. The setup cost is achievable for most communities. The ongoing cost is minimal due to low maintenance equipment with low power consumption - some stations in remote areas even use solar power.

    The history of literature—take the net result of Tiraboshi, Warton, or Schlegel,—is a sum of a very few ideas, and of very few original tales,—all the rest being variation of these.

    It takes a great deal of history to produce a little literature.
    Henry James (1843–1916)

    Systematic philosophical and practical anti-intellectualism such as we are witnessing appears to be something truly novel in the history of human culture.
