Hey all.
I am Grant..(am a natural born kiwi)..Own a large IT
Company in China...Moving that home to NZ, should be back
around Sept / Oct '13.

I am planning to set up a LPFM Station in the small
Taranaki town of Manaia. Because I aint been in NZ for
over 11 years I would like some tips on where to buy the
gear I need.

Also I specialize in computers, built CPU's, boards, full
machines, and software ranging from full OS'es (operating
systems), to simple stuff like widgets and apps. So can
advise anyone needing tips on computer / Internet side of
things.

I wont post my company website link in this post but it
is there in my profile. From that link you'll find the
area "spoonITup" and on that page you'll find a link
leading to my radio station info page "Spoon FM". Please
don't judge harshly, the website is about 90% completed
:)

So past the intro....Can someone point me in the right
direction to buy transmitters and aerials.

I have scoured the NZ net (it's a sad place when compared
to the global net but I will change that) and can't find
one place that has all the things that I can simply go in
with my list and buy.

So your help is much apprec.

Regards GrantK
