666 ABC Canberra

Read Information

666 (formerly known as 2CN) began broadcasting in January 1953, bringing a second ABC station to the national capital. (2CY, or Radio National as it’s now known, began broadcasting here in December 1938.) This additional station was connected into the national broadcasting service by a line from Sydney. As the 666 transmitter was of a lower power and higher frequency it didn’t quite have the same coverage as 2CY. For this reason 2CY continued to carry regional programming while 666 began serving the local community with Canberra based programs. Official website of 666 ABC Canberra is www.abc.net.au/canberra
