Blockhouse Bay Radio
is a low-power FM radio station in west Auckland, transmitting on 88.3
mhz. The year 2009 marked its fourth year of continuous transmitting, so to celebrate the event in a philatelic way, the station has issued several CAL stamps featuring charming West Auckland felines.These are "personalised" stamps printed by NZ Post and valid for postage. For more details and discussion on NZ's cals, please see the thread on Stampboards here:
... Penny, a ginger female kitten. (Most gingers are male, so this is a rare cat!) 50c
... Penny again, but with new website in small print down left side.60c
â€¦ Penny again, with red
stripe and new website.60c
â€¦ Penny again, with white stripe and old website.$1
... Panterra, a tortoiseshell female. $2
... Shadow, a grey female, and holder of the Blockhouse Bay Gold Medal for champion mousecatcher. $2.50
... Shadow again, but with a RED
stripe (to make it distinctive from the $2 stamp).
