Michael Keenan MP claims credit for work done by RIGHT
See below for the article...
Radio Interference Group – Hamersley Towers (RIGHT) is a community
group of local residents affected by the Hamersley radio transmitter and
it’s interference. The group has been working on issues surrounding
tower interference for more than 4 years. More information on the issues
we are addressing can be found on our website at www.right.net.au.
With this in mind, I would like to point your readers to an article
entitled “Working to solve Hamersley Tower interference” on
page 1 of “The Keenan Report” featured as an insert into the
Eastern Suburbs Reporter on Tuesday May 16 2006.
We are astounded that Mr Keenan can claim ownership of the issue and
that he has been working hard to resolve this issue. However, despite
our efforts to involve him and his office as our local member, we have
had no response nor, has he ever attempted to consult us on the issue
(particularly in light of the Hon Senator Coonan’s visit). In one
instance, he has provided entirely inaccurate information to a group of
constituents about the resolution to the issues caused by the interference.
RIGHT has had several recent accomplishments, including stopping additional
transmitters from being placed on the Hamersley site. More importantly
we have averted the potential broadcast of digital radio broadcasts from
Hamersley that could have crippled telephone and television services for
the approximate 150,000 residents in the affected vicinity of the tower.
So Mr Keenan, what have you achieved in resolving this issue?
