Contact FM is a student radio station operating from the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand. It broadcasts on the 88.1 MHz frequency. The original Contact FM, owned by the Waikato Students Union, was broadcast on 89.0 MHz from 1985 to 1998. During a period of voluntary student unionism, the WSU subleased the frequency to private ownership, along with selling Contact FM's equipment. The Independent Broadcasting Community relaunched Contact on a low-power frequency 106 MHz, before settling with its current frequency of 88.1 MHz.
The current Management Committee of the Independent Broadcasting Community (Hamilton) Incorporated, who run Contact FM, is:
