Meet our newest team member!


It’s a pleasure to introduce Lachlan Wiltshire, the newest member of Sonifex Australia. Lachlan’s early exposure to BEND FM through his involvement with the Scout Jamboree, sparked an interest in pursuing a career in broadcasting. Working with our Technical Manager, Don Coyle, Lachlan hopes to build on the foundational knowledge he acquired with the Scouts. Lachlan has already established himself as a conscientious, valuable addition to our office. Welcome to the team, Lachlan!





Four generations under one roof!

It’s not every day that you see four generations of transmitters operating in one hut, but that’s currently the case at the 4KQ and 4BH AM site in Brisbane.

Representing more than 30 years of Nautel technology under the one roof, we now have an Ampfet 10 (1985), ND5 (2003), XR12 (2006) and the latest NX10 on show and in service! Thanks to Broadcast Australia’s Technical Specialist Steve Main for providing these photos after he recently installed the new NX10 for 4KQ.

For any Nautel inquiries please email us or call (02) 9987 0499.

NEW Cloud Controller Codec

The Cloud Codec Controller can immediately detect the presence of a Tieline codec or device running the Report-IT Enterprise app as soon as it connects to the internet. Features include:

  • Monitoring of connection status, link quality and audio levels.
  • Remote adjustment of audio levels.
  • Remotely dial and hang-up remote codec connections from the studio.
