Autumn is usually a time of quiet hibernation – but not at 2RPH! 

We’re fired up for the winter spurts of New Growth we need to improve the services we offer our loyal listening audience over the next 12 months. 

You can help. With your support 2RPH will extend its reach to the Illawarra via Wollongong and an estimated potential audience of over 300,000 listeners. 

We'll also build a new studio to broadcast the innovative new programs we're developing. 

And we'll create even more flexible listening options with our podcast production services. 

One of the most urgent and critical developments will be finding new, much more accessible premises for the station which will make it easier for all staff and volunteers to navigate. 

2RPH is your station. We know your support will grow with us in 2021.Thank You!
