This northern Queensland study aimed to gain feedback on: weather warning courses run by the weather bureau, upgrades to operator desks in remote Indigenous radio studios in northern Queensland and on the terminology of weather warnings. This indicative study found that Bureau training courses in weather warnings for remote broadcaster radio announcers were appreciated, with suggestions they be expanded. The recent upgrades to remote radio transceiver operator desk equipment were greatly appreciated, while the terminology used in warnings targeted to remote Indigenous communities was generally seen as useful and clear, but lots of translating was usually needed.
