The newest community radio station to take to the air in Sydney has begun broadcasting from Baulkham Hills.

Radio 2CCR - described as "the voice of the Hills, Holroyd and Parramatta"- went to air on 90.5 FM for the first time on December 18 and by next month, it hopes to broadcast around the clock. It is the 20th community radio station in Sydney.

The director of the Cumberland Media Association, Mr Ivor Jones, said membership was invited for an annual fee of $20. People with special interests in ethnic broadcasting, alternative music or community news are some of the users of community radio.

Mr Jones, a returning officer with the Electoral Commission, said work in community radio was unpaid - "it's all done for love of the community".

"School students will be invited along to put a program to air to give them some expertise - some training - in communications through radio."
