2QN back on the air

2QN in Deniliquin is now back on the air after a wind gust during a storm knocked over their transmission tower yesterday.

The station went off the air at about 4pm yesterday, and was returned to the airwaves this afternoon at around 2pm. According to a staff member’s Facebook messages, 2QN’s sister station Classic Rock was also taken off the air in the incident.

Other reports say that power in Deniliquin was restored this afternoon, after being lost in yesterday’s storm.

Happy birthday to the GST

Today we wish the Good and Services Tax a happy birthday, for it was on this day in the year 2000 that the Howard government replaced a whole bunch of archaic taxes with it. Unfortunately the GST hasn’t replaced income tax yet, but I look forward to the day that it does.
