From the vision of a couple of “radio buffs”, and the establishment of our radio station by the five founding members, its first broadcast took place in March 1993. Since then, station has achieved considerable milestones, culminating in the move to our North Gosford premises in 2009 with a broadcasting licence current to 2017. Since 1999, we have broadcast 24/7.
In April 2012, Radio Five-O-Plus were required to relocate station's transmitter and antenna to a new adjacent radio tower and share a common antenna, in a joint venture, with two other local community stations.
All three community stations now broadcast at 2000 watts each in stereo, from a Vertical Antenna. Radio Five-O-Plus covers the whole Central Coast area from the Hawkesbury River to Lake Macquarie plus they have listeners in the Blue Mountains, Northern Beaches and Newcastle. With the advent of streaming, Radio Five-O-Plus now have listeners tuning in from regional areas, interstate and overseas.
