Golden West Network
In 1979, Jack Bendat purchased South West Telecasters (owner of BTW/GSW) and changed the company's name to Golden West Network (GWN).
By 1981, GWN was transmitting to BTW-3 Bunbury, with relays at GSW-9 Mount Barker and GSW-10 Albany, with translators at BTW-6 Narrogin, BTW-10 in both Katanning and Mawson, BTW-11 Wagin, and BTW-55 Northam. Two new translators would later open up at Gnowangerup and Kojonup, both on UHF-66.
In the years that followed, BTW-10 Mawson would move to VHF-11 in order to accomodate NEW-10 (now 10 Perth), BTW-11 would move to VHF-6, BTW-6 would move to UHF-60, and BTW-55 would move to UHF-59.
