Junior Technician –
Chief Engineer - Channel 10 Brisbane
Don Savage joined the TV station as a junior technician and became one of the studio/transmitter staff. After Don achieved his TVOCP qualifications he stayed with DDQ10 for some years. Eventually he resigned and accepted the position of Chief Engineer of Channel 0 in Brisbane.
It was around this time that both DDQ 10 and TVQ 0 swapped their transmitting frequencies. This was done by the Australian Government so that TVQ 0 would now be up with both Channel 7 and Channel 9. (upper end of the allocated frequency band.) This caused a major problem for DDQ 10 as both new transmitters and antenna systems had to be replaced with new components.
