Our release 01/07/19


Feb 2008.

ABC News Almost Half Australians canít read, write Survey

International survey indicates that nearly half of Australians canít read or write properly.


Australian Population in 2008 was 21.000.000 million that means 10.000.000 million could not read or Write.

3.000.000 million of these live outside the cities bounders the government of the day could not care a shit.

They had 7.000.000 million living inside the cities bounders and they were very happy about that in those days.

But those who lived outside of these bounders meant nothing to them.

What has change ďNothingĒ the government still donít care?

July 2019

Australian population at this time is 25.000000 million so if we go with nothing has change it means 12.000.000 million canít read or write 30% of that is close to 4.000000 million Australians that the government donít care the shit about.

You see they have 12.000000 million living inside the cities bounders.

But those who lived outside of these bounders mean nothing to them today.


The government of the day they take from these 4.000000 million Australians ever day by taxes and other means but give nothing back like they do to their dear friends that live in the cities Bounders they get a Radio station that reads to those who canít read many items for free to any one that lives in that bounders of the cities across Australia.

But us in the country nothing they make sure we canít receive those radio station that broadcast in the cities. RPH stations.   







Asking for Help for the Disable or Handicap you must think where you or they are living if you live in one of our 8 cities the help you get is the best? Why you asked well that is simple you are one of the 75% that lives there.

Asking for help and you live in the country you are one of the 25% so the help is not there for you as this 25% is a low number and the governments Federal or State canít see where it would help those with handicap or class as disable in the country to put money into.

Many 25% lives in houses that back up to the cityís boundaries example if you live on the road that runs from the city Brisbane to the city of Ipswich itís very hard to tell where the boundaries is why you asked well itís just houses and more houses without a break but the Federal & State governments they now so it might look like you are in the big count of 75% but in fact you belong to the 25% this is wrong we are all human & should be treated the same.

Before you take a vote see what your Federal Politician or State Politician has to say on this point should we who live in the country be treated differently to those in the cities?                          


Radio For All Australians Farewell to a great MP Paul Neville


1995 Paul Neville MP was shock to hear the federal government did not allowed the broadcasting of Radio For the Printing Handicap pass the city boundaries of Queensland and that was Brisbane.  

He could not believe that the Federal Government drew a line and anyone living outside this line was not entitle to listen to a radio station that was broadcasting all that is needed for the Print Handicap & Disable in their daily life.

A meeting with the founder of Radio For All Australians Ken Hall, Paul Neville MP went into action he soon had the Queensland Nation Party behind him why should these folk of Queensland miss out on a Federal Government paid scheme

1997 Nationals Conference in Brisbane new about Radio for all Australians and the Queensland Nationals were behind the idea to bring the Handicap & Disable & the Age people living the country the rights to turn on the RPH station that could only be heard by their cousins living in the city.

2001 Paul Neville MP with his hard work into Radio for All Australians ender up as Chair into Local Voices Inquiry Regional Radio held in parliament House Canberra

Radio For all Australians had their first chance to put their case forward and they did.

And still doing so if it was not for Paul Neville MP this fight would not got off the ground

Paul said many time if his party the Nationals were the government on their own rights the Handicap & Disable & the Age would have their radio station no matter where they lived in Australia but the Liberals under John Howard no way.

Radio for all Australians like to thank Paul Neville for all the work & time he spent fighting for all the people of Australia.




WHY 22/11/18

Prime Minister of Australia The Hon Scott Morrison MP can we ask you why ?

We who are handicap and never plan to be, why must we have a computer if we live in the Country to receive RPH radio stations?

 When those who live in the 8 cities don't, they just need a CHEAP hand hold radio to hold on to so we are asking why ? Prime Minister of Australia.



 Calling for a Royal Commission 26/7/18


IN 1889 that is 129 years ago, there was a report of the ROYAL COMMISSION on The blind, deaf and dumb of the United Kingdom was handed down.

Do you think as we think it is time to have another Royal Commission to look at this subject and it should be held in Australia?


If you say yes please, please send your say onto  The Federal Government at the office of The Minister of Communications Senator Mitch Fifield at minister@communications.gov.au 


RPH Radio Stations stands for ďRadio For The Print HandicapĒ there are eight of these Radio Stations. They are to broadcast to all Australians that are Print Handicap, but under the Radio Licence given out by the Federal Government, they can only broadcast in the main cities of Australia, which total a population of 75% of Australians.

The other 25% population live outside the cityís boundaries and do not count in any way by the Federal Government or the running of eight RPH stations.

Those Residents living outside the city boundaries are forgotten by the Federal Government (sometimes just by a kilometer or two) they still pay their dues like their cousins in the Cities.

Many Millions of Tax payers money is finding its way to the Management of RPH and the outcome is not reaching the heights it should be.

We believe a Royal Commission should be looking at this as this is a poor decision by the Federal Government.

Boundaries in the South East of Queensland between Brisbane, Gold Coast and Ipswich can only be separated by a few kilometers, so how can the Federal Government say these live in the cities and only a few kilometers away are classed as living in the country.

If you think a Royal Commission should be looking into the fight of the Print Handicap or those classed as Disable.

I think the result was replica watches uk over the original strap, and several colleagues commented that they'd never seen a strap swap make such a dramatic change to replica watches. It seems that Christophe also agrees, and after seeing my initial photos, he has begun seeking a supplier for mesh-style bracelets to offer with the Bausele Terra Australis in the future. That's one inherent strength of small brands like replica watches uk the agility to be able to take one piece of feedback from a random watch blogger like myself and run with it. I doubt any of the established audemars piguet replica would listen to, much less apply, any of my criticisms or feedback. The case tapers upwards towards the edged crown guards at 12 oíclock, set with a pair of replica watches uk screws that match nicely with the black crown in-between.


I Acquired Brain Damage at the age of 8.

It left me unable to Read or Spell WORDS.


Since then I worked in the work force and paid my Taxes

Today I pay all GST Tax just like you do.


I did my part in Citizen Military Forces National Service

And here I am living outside the Capital Cities of Australia yes my own choice, like 25% other Australians.


Because of this I like the other 25% I am treated like undomesticated humans because of this I miss out on a right all other Australians get that live in the Capital Cities.


You see they pay Taxes and GST and they get special help if they canít READ they get help from a Radio Station called RPH that READS the written word from many Newspapers and other items.


This RPH radio station can be listen too by anyone with any sort of Radio in the Capital Cities and RPH would love to transmit Further into the country side of Australia to help their own.


But the federal Government and there laws on Radio Station is control by the Minister of Communications Senator Mitch Fifield and his office canít see the advantage by broadcasting to those who live in the Country.

See our list who we are talking about just go to http://radioforallaustralians.com/home4.html


The way the Gold Coast, Ipswich, Toowoomba, areas are growing so fast how can, The Minister of Communications Senator Mitch Fifield canít see the population is closing in on Brisbane & becoming one. It is time know to do something about it not later.


Sample my city of Hervey Bay in 1981 the population was sixteen thousand today 2018 it is fifty two thousand how can this Senator Mitch Fifield turn his back on those who chose to live in the Fraser Coast it totals one hundred and one thousand population.


So please one day this could be you choosing to live outside a capital city and for some unknown reason you or someone close to you could do with this type of Radio program that is available if you had chosen to live in the city of your state.


Please have your say a quick email to the The Minister of Communications Senator Mitch Fifield could help Minister@communications.gov.au




This Email was received by us and we believe its to important not to add in our Press Release

Mr. Peter Batchelor

Koo Wee Rup & District Lions Club,


P.O. Box 71,

Community Broadcasting Foundation                                       

                                     KOO WEE RUP Vic 3981


Dear Mr. Batchelor,


I write on behalf of the members of the Koo Wee Rup & District Lions Club in support of 'Radio for All Australians' campaign to have radio for the print handicapped available to all Australians across this country.


In 1925, Helen Keller, the blind American author and social activist spoke at the Lions Clubs International convention and challenged the Lions organisation to become 'knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness'. The challenge was wholeheartedly accepted by the conventioneers and today sight related programs remain a cornerstone of Lions' altruistic works.


Hence, the concept of radio for the print handicapped strikes a resonant chord with the members of the Koo Wee Rup Lions Club.


 From RPH Australia's literature it is noted that in 2017 there were in excess of 4.8 million Australians, representing over 22% of the country's population, with a print disability, which is an increase of over 1 million on 2007 figures.


Graeme Innes AM, Disability Discrimination Commissioner, Australian Human Rights Commission between 2005 and 2014 once said, "Imagine your life if you couldn't read print. From the daily newspaper first thing in the morning to the favourite book that puts you to sleep at night, your day would be very different. The RPH Radio Reading Network works to fill this gap. The 18 radio reading services across the RPH Network provide access to a wide range of current media for Australians who rely on 'alternate format' news, lifestyle and recreational reading. The RPH Network keeps Australians with a print disability in touch with what's going on, including them in the social, political, economic and cultural life of Australia".


Surely the sentiments expressed by Graeme Innes are valid.


Surely all Australians have an equal right to radio for the print handicapped, irrespective of whether they live in a city or a small rural community.


Hence, the members of the Koo Wee Rup Lions Club respectfully urge you to consider the plight of those Australians with a print disability who currently have no access to RPH and request that serious and timely consideration be given to expanding the services offered by RPH throughout Australia.


It would be appreciated if receipt of this email could be acknowledged, together with details of any proposed developments in this area.


Yours sincerely,


Jack Napior

Acting Secretary




If you are reading this please copy it and send this part onto info@acma.gov.au as a vote from you


                               We ask Should RPH radio for the Print Handicap be all over Australia if YES then please email ACMA CEO Nerida Oloughiln at info@acma.gov.au or just forward this Email on to

Australian Communications and Media Authority Found on the Internet. 

As it is the 8 capital cities have RPH radio for the Print Handicap but it?s not for those who live in the Country.



Radio for all Australians president Ken Hall was invited to speak at Local Voices: Inquiry 2001 into Regional Radio by the Chair Paul Neville MP of Hinkler of Queensland.

This invite allowed me to walk the floor of the lower House and the Senate, the office of the Senator Richard Alston was out of bounds for me, but I could have a meeting with his minders while they had a cupper at the caf?.

I put to them TV was in many homes across the country and we could take the idea of Radio For All Australians into their homes with the RPH programs.

They said that they could not see anywhere in the future that Radio Stations could be broadcasted on television, as they were two entirely different transmitting devises.

2018 With smart televisions Radio Stations such as; SBS Radio ? ABC Jazz ? 200 Doubley Music are broadcasted to all homes and businesses, caravan sites and Nursing Homes they all receive these Radio Station (Format) on their televisions.

Anyone in Australia can listen to them on television why can?t RPH Radio For the Print Disabled be broadcasted on television in the above format.

As 99% of the population have a television set in their home it would be a huge starting point to get RPH Programs to everyone?s home.

The only thing wrong with a television it is not portable to carry it around the house, out in the country, down the street or to the beach It?s not like a radio which is portable.

As we have to start somewhere this would be a great help. As the numbers of print disabled people is growing daily.

So come on help us we are talking about those who are Print Disable we  all don?t live in the cities and we do need to be kept up with what?s going on in Australia and the World today and you can help with a simple email to Mitch Fifield Minister of Communications and the Arts at Minister@communications.gov.au  


If you are not happy to email the Minister Mitch Fifield then email the board of ACMA  CEO Nerida Oloughiln at info@acma.gov.au

Dear Sir or Madam this is excellent you are reading this email, its nothing you do this all the time without thinking, by the way did you know? A big population of Australians CAN'T READ the WRITTEN WORD or write it. 


You think Reading is easy well to 12million plus Australians well we can tell you its bloody not.


And by the way this number is growing each day a new child (Boy or Girl) will be born that will have trouble all their life reading the written words. (Could be one child or a few)


Then there any age person for some reason losses the power to read & Write we list many of these under (Our Dream For All Australians) on our website.


We are talking about the ones that do not end up Blind.


Spelling words, writing words, some can handle two or three words in a sentence but after that their brain just can't handle it.


We are talking about humans (Young & Old) no matter how much schooling they get their minds (Brain) just can't handle the process of Reading & Writing.


By now you be wondering how can we help these folk, they are all Australians, living in ever crack & cranny of Australia.


The Government of the day many years ago realised that Radio was the way to go as radio stations were ever where over this great country of ours.


Also the government of the day ran a radio station called the ABC with this going into ever crack & cranny it was easy to help these people by reading example the Newspaper of the day plus births & Deaths and Books Magazines you name it as long it could be read out it was.


By the way Radio also educated new Australians on how to Read English & speak it.


With the introduction of Television all over Australia radio programs took a dive, it was firmly believe that television would take over from Radio and bring to those who could not Read the same format.


It took a few years for those in the Federal Government to understand the Blind was missing out as there was no one reading them the Newspaper of the day plus births & Deaths and Books Magazines this was also found missing for many disable (handicap) folk.


So a law was passed that each capital city would have a Radio station for the Blind & Disable (Handicap) but these Radio Stations would be run by volunteers and all expenses to be met by the governments and the said radio station.


1996 The Government of the day said in each state 75% of the population lived in the cities so they could see no reason why the other 25% living in the country would need these types of programs. This was said by the federal government spoke person Sir Richard Alston Minister for communications.

Since then ever Minister for communications. Has pushed this idea, we have 75% of the population living in the cities and that is a great total and we are happy with these figures and we can see no reason to take these station out into the country. (They are RPH radio stations)


We say things have change since the 1996 we will give example by showing the growth of some cities in Queensland (If you are from another state you should be able to show the same)


(1)  Hervey Bay Fraser Coast Queensland 1996  population was 42.391 today 2017

101.077 reported to be one of the fastest growing cities in Queensland.


(2)  City of Ipswich Queensland 1996 population was 26.853 today in 2017 is 200.000 growing very fast its boundary joins with Brisbane a city that has a radio station that can broadcast for the blind and the disable (handicap)  but under the law cannot broadcast over their boundary into the city of Ipswich.


(3)  City of Gold Coast Queensland 1996 population was 311,93 today 2017 is 707.309 growing very fast only 77.8 KM from Brisbane a city that has a radio station that can broadcast for the blind and the disable (handicap)  but under the law cannot broadcast over 77.7 km  into the city of the Gold Coast.


(4)  City of Toowoomba Queensland 1996 population was 83.350 today 2017 is 115.868 the growth of Toowoomba is expected to double by 2030 with the new road up the range and the new airport.


By this these country cities are growing fast and faster, their population is like all cities or towns in Australia growing with all types of folk that is class as Disable (Handicap) the country cities & Towns may not be seen as75% of Australian population but they must be getting closer to these figures.


So why is the Minister for communications? Senator Mitch Fifield turning his back on those people that don't live in the 8 Capital Cities in Australia.


New Radio Stations for all Australians can help in many ways like more employment more work for volunteers, the ABC radio could play a huge piece in this.


And yes bring peace of mind to many Australians that are not thought of by our Federal Government & yes the State Government as well.  



Date 10/05/17

                                The Secretary,  12million plus Australians can?t READ but they can hear the written words spoken by any voice.


I have a dream for a large number of these Australians that can?t READ the written word. It so simple a radio transmitter?s placed outside of the 8 capital cities broadcasting the sounds from RPH radio stations that are placed in ever capital city in Australia. RPH station bring the newspaper to you by voice and much more like all births & Deaths & much more.


To make this dream come true for a 77 year old man that can?t read please go to http://radioforallaustralians.com and click on The Hon Mr. Malcolm Turnbull MP Prime Minister Of Australia and write to him for all Australians that can?t read no fault of their own. By telling him what it is like to be class as a third class citizen living in Australia.  


Radio For All Australians

Yours Sincerely

The Australians Government said the Radio For Print Disable (Handicap) is the goods as it is run by the Blind Association in each State.


We are sorry to its all for the Blind as it don?t overflow for the rest of the community.


All the years the Blind Association has not improve their cover.


We the Disable (Handicap) would like to see a Royal Commission to look in to this.


The Disable (Handicap) should have the same rights as the blind do they need voice that reads the newspaper and other items so do we.  








Radio for all Australians is writing to you to tell you about the unfairness of the Federal   Government to folk like you and may others that lives outside the bounders of the eight capital cities of Australia. The others are Disable Handicap and the age and Children.


In each capital city there is a Radio Station called RPH they broadcast the written words for the Blind like reading of the main news in newspaper, stock share, grain price, stock value, example they read even the births and deaths, in fact they read many other items by voice.


Any person living in these eight cities can listen to it no matter where they are. On a Tractor working sheep or cattle on their 10 acres farms or sitting at home or in the car.


Any one like you on a large Rural Properties or just 10 acres as long as you are outside the city boundaries you miss out on hearing by ear a voice with the written words.


The Federal Government believes this is ok as 75% of Australians live in the cities and they need it before folk like you that means 25% of Australians miss out.


My self-brain damage at the age of eight can?t read to save his own life I have lived out in the country like you do, today live in Hervey Bay Queensland like many I can?t afford to live in Brisbane one of the eight cities, so the Federal Government said sorry you and others like you miss out.


Well we don?t think that?s fair so we are asking you if you get a chance speak to your local member Federal or State and tell them a radio station like the RPH is wanted all over Australia, or the ABC radio can do this type of programs just for a few hours each day that?s not too hard to do is it.


Please 12 Million Australians need this they can?t help it if they don?t live in the Cities.


Writing for me I used my voice computer with dragon, please see our website to understand what I?m trying to say http://radioforallaustralians.com



                                   Hi, we asked you to take 2 & Half Minutes and listen to the actor Mr. Ken Lee as he has his say on Radio For All Australians.
