History[edit]

The 1503 frequency had been previously vacated by 3AK as it moved to occupy 1116 AM[7] The first test broadcast was in 1998.[5]

3KND was one of the later entrants into the temporary community broadcasting period in Melbourne as part of the lead up to the granting of four additional community licences for the City. It was granted the only AM license available for community radio at that time. 3KND was licensed at the same time as JOY 94.9, for the LGBT community; Christian contemporary-formatted Triple 7 (now LightFM); and the student-run SYN FM (now SYN 90.7)[8] At the time it was founded, 3KND was Melbourne's first Indigenous radio station.[6]

Official broadcasting began in June 2003.[2] Internet streaming was introduced in 2006. The launch of 3KND on digital radio in 2010.

3KND's internet streaming is provided by Internode (ISP).[9]
