The legend is that Perth is the most remote city in the world — and though, in fact, that may not be quite true, it's certainly a long way from Perth to anywhere else. However, thanks to the Vision network of transmitters, connected via satellite to the broadcast studios, Perth is no more remote than anywhere else in Australia. It has over a dozen FM transmitters covering the city and suburbs, many of them dating back to the early days of the national network.
Perth's first Vision transmitter went on air when a flurry of new transmitters were installed back in 2004. Hillarys was the first to hit the airwaves on New Year's Day 2004, followed later by relay stations in Mirrabooka, Maddington, Kwinana, Karrinyup and Gooseberry Hill. Now the city is covered from Butler, in the city's north, right down to Warnbro, south of Rockingham.
LP means this frequency is low-powered, with a typical coverage of around 5km radius.
HP means high-powered with a much larger coverage – typically, 30–50km radius.
