2Max FM History

2Max FM is a community radio staffed by volunteers who give their time freely to entertain people of the Narrabri Shire and beyond, who rely on sponsor and membership fees to stay on air. 2Max FM started in 1993 with two public meetings and had our first broadcast on 3rd September, 1993 for one week.

On 21st January 1995, the ABA granted us an extra three days to report on the flood reports in our area the same in 1996 and the bushfires in 1997. In 1999 the ABA rejected our application for a full time license due to the second application for a broadcast licence in the Shire, which means we had to share air time with the other applicant, one month on one month off, but in November 2000 we finally got our full time broadcast licence granted with great jubuilation from the crew and listeners.
