The station is owned by Broadcast Australia, part of the UK-Based BAI. Following the Australian Government's decision to abandon all Government funded HF broadcasting in January 2017, expressions of interest were sought from potential buyers, and a "For Sale: notice was placed near the main entranced on Verney Rd, Shepparton North.

The reserve was set at A$5 million, but the highest bid was for A$3.1 million and the property was withdrawn from sale.

In the meantime, the Shepparton Shire has placed a Heritage Overlay on the site, pending possible sale.

The Shepparton and District Amateur Radio Club has established a sub-committee for preparation of a submission to the Shire for conversion of the facility into a Radio Communications Museum, acknowledging that extensive land clearing would be needed. A major irrigation channel, part of the Murray-Darling Scheme, passes across the site, beneath the antennas.

A school is located directly opposite the site.

The Shire's Heritage Advisory Committee is linked with any "future plans" proposals.
