I guess it is all about money-or the lack of it!

Thomson TX from 1989 / 1990.
The reason why this transmitter was off the air several months ago was a
lack of money to buy a very expensive output valve.

The 27 years old tx has had quite a few problems over the years, including
being struck by lightning once.

It certainly is going to be a strange business,  broadcasting at times in
DRM and at others in AM. Personally I don't see the point of using DRM,
given that RNZI is also available on satellite now, but I suppose RNZI has
invested quite a lot in DRM and has to justify its use. I don't know how
many Pacific stations use the DRM for news relays, having said that.

The current right-wing NZ Government does not like RNZ, saying RNZ has a
leftist bias and consequently has not increased funding for the last 8 years
it has been in office.

I guess RNZI has had budgets frozen too and there is no point asking for
funds for a replacement transmitter. The DRM tx was bought when the
left Labour Government was still in power.

Web on line in the Pacific is expensive as it is delivered to most places by
satellite, not undersea cables.

Interesting times are ahead!
