A unit of the Victorian Broadcasting Network and of the Macquarie Network, 3TR Gippsland is included in most of their extensive major features. Excellent programmes are thereby assured and that is one reason why 3TR is widely listened to. Its transmitter is favourably situated and it covers the whole of eastern Victoria.
The modern studios of 3TR are well equipped and its transmitter is of the latest approved type with a vertical radiator and an elaborate earth system.
The programmes include many important National features and local artists and productions are not neglected. Indeed, a feature is made by 3TR of district broadcasts and live artist preformances in its studios at Sale and Bairnsdale. Most of the programmes are broadcast from the main studios at Sale and from the new studio at Bairnsdale regular transmissions are made.

I’m embarrassed to be here. I’m waiting for the state radio sponsor to arrive. He’s late. Please just ask me to go away. I’m cheap.
