990 6RPH Information Radio used to broadcast on 990 kHz AM and was owned and operated by the Foundation for Information Radio of Western Australia Inc. It aimed to provide access to printed information for Western Australians with a print disability.[1] It is a member of RPH Australia.[2][3]

Its radio reading service was available on 990 AM throughout the wider Perth metropolitan area. However in the early part of 2015 the station started to play a recorded music loop, together with a repeated announcement that its service had been suspended due to "technical issues". As of late March/early April 2015 6RPH was no longer broadcasting.

Radio 6PM occupied the 990 kHz frequency until the late 1980s.
