Faulty Towers: TLC radio transmitter

YAMBA's community radio broadcaster TLC fm experienced transmission problems yesterday following a thunderstorm off the coast overnight.

To get the word out, presenters posted a photo to Facebook showing what appeared to be a transmission tower lying on the ground, causing a flurry of excitement among fans, other volunteer presenters and newspaper reporters.

When The Daily Examiner phoned TLC chairman Angus Sutter he was surprised to hear the tower had been destroyed and immediately went to investigate.

Mr Sutter called back within minutes to say the problem had been fixed and the photo was just a bit of fun, posted by presenters.

"Don't believe everything you see on Facebook," Mr Sutter said.
