The History of Triple T 103.9
In February of 1979, the society organized a competition to give the station a name all-be it premature, at that stage they did not even know if they were going to get a licence. A prize, donated by Russ Adams Pty.Ltd., was a FM radio cassette recorder. In March 1979 , the name chosen as the winner was provided by the Burrows family of Gulliver for the name 4TTT (Tropical Townsville Transmitter). The 4TTT station name was then used in all public promotions for three years and didn’t receive formal approval from the Australian Broadcasting Tribunal until 15th February 1982 , six months after the licence had been granted and three years after it had started being used.
