NBC (PNG) broadcasts South Pacific Games from former RA transmitters at Townsville, QLD

The collapse of ABC Radio Australia internal capacity to provide specific regional content has seen PNG national broadcaster step up to lease transmission time from Australian contractor Broadcast Australia for the South Pacific Games next month 4 -18 July 2015. The site is Townsville in northern Queensland.
