Radio Data System (RDS) – Text messages on radio displays

RDS allows text messages to be sent by 3mFM & displayed on your FM radio. While this is more common in car radios, it is may also be available on some home & portable radios.

We are currently upgrading our RDS messaging service to include more information such as song Artist – Title & 3mFM Show name.

During this upgrade, RDS message updates may be intermittent & ‘strange’.

Live Streaming

Known Issue: Occasionally, intermittent NBN Broadband at Studio causes Live Streaming dropouts. Especially over summer peak internet use. (Ongoing).

Coverage area: Internet Streaming of 3mFM live audio. Used by applications such as Alexa, Google Home & TuneIn.
