Radio East Gippsland (R.E.G. FM) was established in the 1980's by two dedicated groups in
East Gippsland with an intent to provide a unique community radio station.
Lakes Community Radio Inc. and East Gippsland Community Radio Inc. amalgamated to form Radio East Gippsland Inc.
Radio East Gippsland received a broadcast licence allocated for two frequencies, 90.7 & 105.5.
Two separate studios and two transmission towers where to be established, which is the case today.
The Lakes Entrance studio commenced broadcasting from the Glenara complex with the support and generosity of the Lakes Entrance RSL.
The Lakes Entrance studio transmitter (90.7) was located on a shared tower with
East Gippsland Ambulance Service and others.
The Bairnsdale Studio moved into the old engineers house in Jennings Street, owned by East Gippsland Water.
The Bairnsdale transmitter (105.5) was re-located to Mt. Taylor.
New antenna was installed at Mt Taylor (105.5).
The Lake Entrance studio was refurbished.
The new 40 metre Lakes Entrance transmitter was installed with a new antenna and
STL link to the Lakes Entrance studio.
The Bairnsdale studio was relocated from Jennings Street to Dalmahoy Street, Bairnsdale.
