Messages on your Car Radio

January 11, 2020

Have you noticed that 3mFM has recently introduced radio text messages?

RDS (Radio Data System) allows us to send text messages to radios that are RDS enabled. The majority of modern car radios have this feature built in.

So rather than just seeing our FM frequency (88.1, 89.1 or 89.5), you will also see our name ‘3mFM’.

We also provide additional information such as current song Title & Artist and Community messages.

Depending on the particular radio, RDS is also capable of automatically switching between our three FM frequencies depending on which signal is strongest as you drive through our South Gippsland coverage area.

Let us know what you think!
