ABC-3 Canberra began transmission on 18 December 1962, with translators later installed from the late 1980s at Condor on UHF-49, Mount Taylor on UHF-55, Fraser on UHF-56, and Tuggeranong on UHF-60. This logo was used in articles promoting the launch of the channel. The callsign stood for ABC Canberra.
On 30 June 1995, ABC-3 Canberra moved frequencies to VHF-9. The VHF-3 signal would remain on air for five weeks before being switched off on 6 August. This change of frequency was done to open up community FM frequencies in Canberra and surrounds, and to start up ABC FM services in Goulburn.
In 2003, both ABC Mount Taylor and ABC Tuggeranong would move to UHF-41 in order to accommodate digital television. Prior to 2014, ABC Canberra would broadcast digitally on VHF-9A.
