HOME BASE: Help Base find a new Space
Base FM's home for the last 7yrs is being torn down. Help us relocate & set up a new studio before the 1st December deadline.
Sadly, the building which has been home to Base FM since 2009, has been marked for development. We have until the end of November to find a new home, build a new studio and relocate the entire station, in order to keep broadcasting & promoting great music to NZ and to the world.
Base FM is 100% independently owned & operated, with a small team which provides a to over 80 volunteer DJs. Since 2004, the station has broadcast on 107.3FM to our neighbourhood in Grey Lynn / Ponsonby, via Freeview Ch71 nationwide & live stream worldwide.
This is our neighbourhood, and one which has seen rapid change & development, yet the inner city suburbs still the core Base FM listenership. Our extended community includes not only individuals that enjoy our musical selections, but also small boutique businesses, venues, promoters, and events based in the area.
We are seeking financial support for the challengers ahead:
- secure a new location & long term lease
- design & build a new broadcast studio
- material costs for timber, double-glassing, carpeting
- build new antennas
- hire broadcast technicians & create new links to existing transmitter
- labour costs for builders / electricians
- install alarm and security monitoring system
- refurbish new premesis
- signs and branding
MINIMUM TOTAL: $16,000
Base FM is essential for New Zealand's music scene both locally and globally. We’re reaching out to our community of listeners and supporters. Please Give A Little so we can continue to deliver local community radio out to the world.

We would like to take this opportunity to send out a massive and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who generously dipped into their own pockets and donated towards the relocation of the station.
We received an overwhelming $12,000 towards the $16K target, and are still receiving offers to help with the build, messages of support and kind words of encouragement for Base.
Due to your of your support, Base will now be migrating to our new location above Portland Public House in Kingsland, with the we aim to be broadcasting from our new studio at the start of December.
While the technical issues are still being worked out, this opportunity allows us to look at increasing the quality of our digital audio quality for both Freeview nationwide and online stream, and the potential to expand our coverage via FM as well.
We honour your ongoing support by keeping true to ourselves and we'll keep doing what we do, the best way we know how!
