8HA is a radio station based in Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia. It broadcasts on the medium wave radio band, at a frequency of 900 kHz.[1]

It also broadcasts on radio channel 42 on the Optus Aurora satellite service on Optus C1.

8HA has been on the air since 1971, and is the only commercial radio station operating on the medium-wave (i.e. AM) band in the Northern Territory (the only other station to do so, 8DN in Darwin, was shut down in the 1990s).

The current format is a mixture of talk and music, with the positioning statement "The Best Songs Of All Time."

8HA's sister station, Sun 96.9, is based in the same building.
